Seth Truscott, College of Agricultural, Human & Natural Resource Sciences PULLMAN, Wash. – A Washington State University team has set out to digitally model how every known gene interacts with every other gene – in plants, animals, insects and people.
PULLMAN, Wash. – Scientists at Washington State University and Kansas State University have isolated and cloned a gene that provides resistance to Fusarium head blight, or wheat scab, a crippling disease that caused $7.6 billion in losses in U.S. wheat fields between 1993 and 2001.
PULLMAN, Wash. – A gene editing technology developed at Washington State University is being licensed to Genus plc, a global animal genetics company, to develop cattle that are more resistant to bovine respiratory disease (BRD).
PULLMAN, Wash. – A free, one-day workshop about genetic sequencing technology and research will be presented by the Genomics Core at Washington State University Spokane on the Pullman campus and via video statewide.
By Eric Sorensen, WSU science writer PULLMAN, Wash. – Washington State University researchers have found “the most famous wheat gene,” a reproductive traffic cop of sorts that can be used to transfer valuable genes from other plants to wheat.
By Jared Brickman, Honors College PULLMAN, Wash. – Your grandmother has some explaining to do. What she was exposed to during pregnancy could make you more susceptible to disease, and you’re going to pass that on to your grandchildren as well.
By Kate Wilhite, College of Agricultural, Human & Natural Resource Sciences PULLMAN, Wash. – A Washington State University professor and a colleague from Australia have deciphered the inner workings of one of the world’s most destructive crop viruses.
