Software competition advances understanding of genetic function

Iowa State University

Sequencing a genome doesn't necessarily reveal the functions of individual genes. An Iowa State University scientist helps to organize a competition to evaluate the accuracy of software programs that predict gene function. The recently published results of the latest competition included 144 entries from 68 teams.

Study of Wisconsin walleye finds recreational fishing contributes to stock declines

University of Wisconsin-Madison

New research shows that when stocks of fish get so low that it becomes a greater challenge to catch them, many anglers step up to the challenge and continue catching fish. This poses a threat to the long-term health of sportfish populations in Wisconsin and in inland recreational fisheries around the world.

Newswise: Four ways to curb light pollution, save bugs

Four ways to curb light pollution, save bugs

Washington University in St. Louis

Artificial light at night negatively impacts thousands of species: beetles, moths, wasps and other insects that have evolved to use light levels as cues for courtship, foraging and navigation. Writing in Biological Conservation, Brett Seymoure, the Grossman Family Postdoctoral Fellow of the Living Earth Collaborative at Washington University in St.

Blowing bubbles: PPPL scientist confirms novel way to launch and drive current in fusion plasmas

Princeton Plasma Physics Laboratory

PPPL physicist Fatima Ebrahimi has used high-resolution computer simulations to confirm the practicality of the CHI start-up technique. The simulations show that CHI could produce electric current continuously in larger, more powerful tokamaks than exist today to produce stable fusion plasmas.
