UV light could cut costs, control crop diseases in fungus fight

Cornell University

Thanks to the work of an international, multidisciplinary team of researchers led by Cornell AgriTech’s David Gadoury, farmers may no longer have to rely exclusively on fungicides to suppress destructive plant pathogens like powdery mildew. Over the last five years, researchers have refined the science and applied technology behind using ultraviolet (UV) light to kill the fungi that causes powdery mildew (PM), opening the door for the technology’s use to control other plant pathogens.

Scientists Locate Brain Area Where Value Decisions Are Made

University of California San Diego

Neurobiologists have located the brain area responsible for value decisions. Data from thousands of neurons revealed an area of the brain called the retrosplenial cortex, previously not known for “value-based decision-making,” a behavior that is impaired in a range of neurological conditions.

Stem Cell Scientists Clear Another Hurdle in Creating Transplant Arteries

Morgridge Institute for Research

Recent work highlights a better way to grow smooth muscle cells, one of the two cellular building blocks of arteries, from pluripotent stem cells. This research is part of an effort to create artery banks — similar to blood banks common today — with readily-available material to replace diseased arteries during surgery.

VisiBlends, a New Approach to Disrupt Visual Messaging

Columbia University School of Engineering and Applied Science

To help non-professionals create visual blends for their news and PSAs, Columbia Engineering researchers have developed VisiBlends, a flexible, user-friendly platform that transforms the creative brainstorming activity into a search function, and enables a statistically higher output of visually blended images. The VisiBlends platform combines a series of human steps or “microtasks” with AI and computational techniques. Crowd-sourcing is a key component of the system enabling groups of people to collaborate, either together or off-site.

MERF Tips the Scale Toward Efficient Materials Testing

Argonne National Laboratory

Scaling new materials is notoriously difficult, but unquestionably vital to improving performance and reducing costs. Energy industries, in particular, depend on the process to produce new materials at sufficient quantities to test and validate their efficacy. To address scaling issues, the U.S. Department of Energy’s (DOE) Argonne National Laboratory has established its Manufacturing Engineering Research Facility (MERF), a truly collaborative and pioneering endeavor aimed at developing cost-effective manufacturing processes to scale up promising new materials.
