UW-Madison Scientists Illuminate Structures Vital to Virus Replication

Scientists at the University of Wisconsin-Madison Morgridge Institute for Research have, for the first time, imaged molecular structures vital to how a major class of viruses replicates within infected cells.

Peanut Family Secret for Making Chemical Building Blocks Revealed

The peanut and its kin have not one, but two ways to make the amino acid tyrosine, one of the 20 required to make all of its proteins, and an essential human nutrient. That might seem small, but why this plant family has a unique way to make such an important chemical building block is a mystery that has captured the attention of Hiroshi Maeda, a professor of botany at the University of Wisconsin–Madison.

By Far, Men Garner Most Coveted Speaking Slots at Virology Meetings

In their recent study, published in the Journal of Virology, the University of Wisconsin–Madison researchers examined 35 years worth of invited speaker rosters from four prominent virology meetings, including the American Society for Virology, which is hosting its annual meeting in Madison, Wisconsin starting June 24, 2017. They found that men were overwhelmingly represented.

Celestial Boondocks: Study Supports the Idea We Live in a Void

A new study by a UW-Madison undergraduate not only firms up the idea that we exist in one of the holes of the Swiss cheese structure of the cosmos, but helps ease the apparent disagreement between different measurements of the Hubble Constant, the unit cosmologists use to describe the rate at which the universe is expanding today.

D-Day Invasion Was Bolstered by UW–Madison Penicillin Project

StaufferandBackus.jpg

Seventy-three years ago Tuesday, on June 6, 1944, the D-Day invasion of Normandy was bolstered by millions of doses of a precious new substance: penicillin. On the other side of the Atlantic, researchers at the University of Wisconsin–Madison and other institutions had spent the last three years pursuing advances in penicillin production.

Bacteria May Supercharge the Future of Wastewater Treatment

Wastewater treatment plants have a PR problem: People don’t like to think about what happens to the waste they flush down their toilets. But for many engineers and microbiologists, including the University of Wisconsin-Madison's Daniel Noguera and Katherine McMahon, these plants are a hotbed of scientific advances.

Government Transparency Limited When It Comes to America’s Conserved Private Lands

A new study led by researchers at the University of Wisconsin–Madison examined why private-land conservation data is sometimes inaccessible and found that limited capacity within some federal agencies as well as laws prohibiting others from disclosing certain information are to blame.
