Antifreeze proteins in Antarctic fish prevent both freezing and melting

Antarctic fish that manufacture their own "antifreeze" proteins to survive in the icy Southern Ocean also suffer an unfortunate side effect, researchers funded by the National Science Foundation (NSF) report: The protein-bound ice crystals that accumulate inside their bodies resist melting even when temperatures warm. read more

How do microbes respond to more acidic oceans? NSF funds Konstantinidis Study to find out

The National Science Foundation has awarded $366,000 to the School of Civil and Environmental Engineering’s Kostas Konstantinidis for a study illuminating how microbes adapt to oceans that are becoming more acidic as a result of climate change. As the amount of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere increases, the pH of seawater is dropping, but we […]
