Researchers found that wood frogs, known for their ability to survive being frozen through, are more susceptible to lethal ranavirus infections if they have been raised in ponds high in salinity from road deicer.
Climate change will leave some farmers with a difficult conundrum, according to a new study by WSU and Cornell University researchers: Either deal with more revenue volatility or live with a more predictable decrease in crop yields.
A new study challenges the idea of evolutionary chance by finding that at least 10 different lineages of fish have adapted to live in an extreme environment using the same mechanism.
A WSU Tri‑Cities researcher received a $100,000 grant to test the lignin-based biofuel, which could replace petroleum-based fuels as well as lead to greater performance and reduced emissions.
Antimicrobial‑resistant bacteria cause more than 2.8 million difficult-to-treat pneumonia, bloodstream and other infections annually in the U.S.
A study by WSU researchers found that fears of confirming stereotypes about pregnant workers as incompetent, weak or less committed to their job can drive pregnant employees to work extra hard, risking injury.
Until now, the use of specific smoking plants by ancient people in the American Northwest had only been a matter of speculation.
As SARS-CoV-2 puts new focus on zoonotic pathogens, WSU disease ecologist Jesse Brunner has developed a method to use environmental DNA to detect disease in the vast trade of aquatic animals.
A new, one‑step 3D printing approach created by WSU scientists could enable manufacturers to approximate the design of complex, natural materials better than ever before.
Pollinator populations are decreasing, and WSU scientists are investigating robotic pollination as a more stable and efficient alternative.
WSU and Duke University researchers have received a three‑year National Science Foundation grant to develop a novel computing framework for big data applications.
They have begun looking for the virus’ genetic material in soil and stormwater samples collected before and after the beginning of the COVID‑19 pandemic.
Their work is paving the way for the development of highly efficient gasoline-powered cars that produce low carbon dioxide emissions that contribute to global warming.
WSU researchers have developed a technology that is more than 30 times more sensitive than current lab‑based tests in finding early stage cancer biomarkers in blood.
The team reports one of the best results to date for a sodium-ion battery. It is able to deliver a capacity similar to a low-end lithium-ion battery and to recharge successfully, keeping more than 80 percent of its charge after 1,000 cycles.
Innovations in information processing such as writing and coinage were as critical to the development of early human societies as the internet is to us today, according to new WSU research.
Two WSU researchers are helping to examine the attributes of potential STEM teachers to better predict later retention and success as part of the American Institutes for Research project.
