Purdue University professor of animal sciences William Muir recognizes the potentially immense benefits of genetic modification technology, commonly known as genetic engineering or gene editing.
New research in game theory shows that people are naturally predisposed to over-use 'common-pool resources' such as transportation systems and fisheries even if it risks failure of the system, to the detriment of society as a whole.
A new type of imaging technology uses the mid-infrared part of the spectrum and 'thermal lensing' to visualize living cells and organisms, an innovation that could bring insights into drug delivery and cancer treatment.
Wind turbines are known to kill large birds, such as golden eagles, that live nearby. Now there is evidence that birds from up to hundreds of miles away make up a significant portion of the raptors that are killed at these wind energy fields.
Call it a gut feeling, but Purdue University researcher Haley Oliver is pretty sure that nearly everyone has suffered from diarrhea at some point.
Civil engineers at Purdue University are leading a project with the Indiana Department of Transportation to learn how to use a type of bridge pile often seen in offshore applications, research that could help reduce the cost of bridge building or replacement of aging spans.
