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.
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.
Led by viral infection researcher Professor Santanu Bose, the WSU team is shedding new light on why some viral infections of the respiratory tract are so deadly.
Sarah Murphy is one of 62 outstanding students from across the United States selected for the award.
From the impact of a Universal Basic Income to safer nuclear fuel to muscle genes in trout—this year’s eight New Faculty Seed Grant awards span a wide range of topics and disciplines.
Using its statewide reach, WSU is helping improve access to broadband service in rural and underserved communities across Washington.
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.
