The United States leads the world in soybean production, harvesting some $4 billion each year from the plant. So when soybeans start falling prey to an affliction known as soybean rust, researchers at the University of Illinois, Urbana-Champaign step up their game to find a solution. A research geneticist has produced the world’s first rust-resistant soybean variant, solving a decades-old riddle that began at the University of Illinois.Read More
Apparently kids aren’t the only ones who should be eating their broccoli. According to recent research by scientists at the University of Pittsburgh Cancer Institute, broccoli sprout extract may hold the key to preventing oral cancer and a variety of other head and neck cancers.Read More
Researchers at University of California, San Diego School of Medicine are now working with functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) to predict language development in kids with autistic spectrum disorder (ASD).
Instances of autism have been rapidly increasing in the United States over the past few decades, with recent rates of affliction reported as high as 1 in 68 children. For many children affected by autism spectrum disorder (ASD), difficulties with language development are an unfortunate reality.Read More
Patients with a condition called lung nodules may be breathing a bit easier thanks to new funding for research at University of California, Davis into the condition. Lung nodules are mostly benign, small lesions often found in CT chest scans. While only 2% of these nodules end up being cancerous, they still need to be examined and monitored to ensure the safety of the patientRead More
