The National Science Foundation has awarded a Small Business Innovation Research grant to Advanced Biological Marketing (ABM). The money will allow ABM to develop a new class of biorational chemicals based on chemical communicants from plant symbiotic fungi to offer greater crop yields, enhanced root growth and resistance to stress.

(National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine) The Gulf Research Program of the National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine and the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation today announced awards totaling $10.8 million to support four new projects in Louisiana and Alabama.
Researchers funded by the Swiss National Science Foundation (SNSF) have discovered mutations that worsen respiratory infections among children. Their study explain the mechanism involved.
(Louisiana State University) LSU researchers lead two of the four projects awarded funding today from the National Academies of Sciences' Gulf Research Program and the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation. All four projects aim to enhance the science and practice of resilience in coastal communities located in the Gulf of Mexico region.
(National Science Foundation) Scientists had long believed that the waters of the Central and Northeast Pacific Ocean were inhospitable to certain species of deep-sea corals, but a marine biologist's discovery of an odd chain of reefs suggests there are mysteries about the development and durability of coral colonies yet to be uncovered.
The National Science Foundation's National Center for Science and Engineering Statistics has more than doubled the sample size of its 2015 Survey of Doctorate Recipients in order to examine employment characteristics for specific fields of degree for the first time.

Authors from Yale and Michigan State University collaborated on a National Science Foundation study of five types of fungi that has illuminated a successful new strategy for pinpointing genes responsible for the evolution of certain biological processes.
The National Science Foundation's Arecibo Observatory and the Planetary Habitability Laboratory of the University of Puerto Rico at Arecibo joined the Red Dots project in the search for new planets around our nearest stars. This new collaboration will simultaneously observe in both the optical and radio spectrum Barnard's Star, a popular star in science fiction literature.
(University of Kansas) With a National Science Foundation Graduate Research Fellowship, Hopkins will investigate the relationship between fire and the way fungi and plants in pine savannas support each other, dubbed 'mutualisms.'
(Penn State) A grant from the National Science Foundation will enable a Penn State-led team of entomologists to develop and disseminate a technology they say could bring gene-editing capabilities within reach of everyday scientists, regardless of the arthropod species they study.
The Swiss National Science Foundation (SNSF) commissioned an external evaluation of its funding category "use-inspired basic research" last year. Based on the evaluators' recommendations, it has now decided to introduce targeted changes in its processes.
(National Science Foundation) Ten new awards from the National Science Foundation (NSF) totaling $14 million will enable biologists to develop enhanced genomic tools that can reveal new insights into why organisms are structured the way they are and function the way they do.
(University of Texas at Arlington) Kyle O'Connell, a fifth-year Ph.D. student in biology, was selected to receive funds from the National Science Foundation's Doctoral Dissertation Improvement Grants program, which typically awards funding to between 100 and 200 projects nationwide each year. O'Connell's faculty advisor is Matt Fujita, assistant professor of biology.

(National Science Foundation) The National Science Foundation (NSF) has long been a leader in supporting research that has formed the basis for smart and connected communities, pushing sensor and networking capabilities beyond today's Internet of Things (IoT) to next-generation technologies able to revolutionize our lives in smart communities across the nation.
(Rochester Institute of Technology) Rochester Institute of Technology leads universities in New York with seven federally funded summer research programs for undergraduate students, according to the National Science Foundation. The NSF awards provide stipends for eight to 10 students per program to work with RIT researchers for 10 weeks. Show More Summary
(University of Tennessee Institute of Agriculture) A new grant sponsored by the National Science Foundation will support a research network designed to identify transdisciplinary research opportunities for scientists in the United States and China working to achieve sustainable use of natural resources for food, energy and water systems.

It's not a "Silicon Valley" plot line. The Firefox maker and the National Science Foundation are aiming for a free and accessible internet for everyone.
Astronomers using the National Science Foundation's Karl G. Jansky Very Large Array (VLA) have found new evidence suggesting that a jet of fast-moving material ejected from one young star may have triggered the formation of another, younger protostar.
