High-Pressure Biology Seeks Answers to Early Life Beginnings

American Crystallographic Association (ACA)

Researchers at Cornell University are using a high-pressure biology facility dedicated to providing the emerging “deep-life” community with new technology to study fundamental molecular biology. The facility provides high-pressure small angle X-ray scattering and macromolecular crystallography technologies to examine how biomolecules function in organisms under high-pressure conditions.

Smart irrigation model predicts rainfall to conserve water

Cornell University

A predictive model combining information about plant physiology, real-time soil conditions and weather forecasts can help make more informed decisions about when and how much to irrigate. This could save 40 percent of the water consumed by more traditional methods, according to new Cornell University research.
