Researchers from North Carolina State University, Lund University in Sweden and the University of Hyogo in Japan have retrieved original pigment, beta-keratin and muscle proteins from a 54 million-year-old sea turtle hatchling. The work...Show More Summary

Study finds auto-fix tool gets more programmers to upgrade code

(North Carolina State University) Failure to make necessary upgrades to software code can have dire consequences, such as the major data breach at Equifax. A recent study finds that auto-fix tools are effective ways to get programmers to make the relevant upgrades - if programmers opt to use them.

Study shows how rough microparticles can cause big problems

(North Carolina State University) Research finds the surface texture of microparticles in a liquid suspension can cause internal friction that significantly alters the suspension's viscosity -- effectively making the liquid thicker or thinner. The finding can help address problems for companies in fields from biopharmaceuticals to chemical manufacturing.

Study shows how rough microparticles can cause big problems

New research from North Carolina State University, MIT and the University of Michigan finds that the surface texture of microparticles in a liquid suspension can cause internal friction that significantly alters the suspension's viscosity – effectively making the liquid thicker or thinner.

Mass extinctions led to low species diversity, dinosaur rule

(North Carolina State University) Two of the earth's five mass extinction events -- times when more than half of the world's species died -- resulted in the survival of a low number of so-called 'weedy' species that spread their sameness across the world as the Earth recovered from these dramatic upheavals.

Research IDs key factors that help women ex-convicts avoid recidivism

(North Carolina State University) New research identifies four factors that help women ex-convicts avoid committing crimes, offering insights that can be used to help former inmates integrate more successfully into their communities after time in prison.

How dance can help students in STEM disciplines

(North Carolina State University) A proof-of-concept study finds participation in dance programs helps students -- including those in science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) disciplines -- develop skills such as creativity and persistence that benefited them in the classroom and beyond.

Sensitivity to time improves performance at remotely controlling devices

(North Carolina State University) A new study finds that people who are more sensitive to the passage of time are better at accounting for the latency -- or time lag -- inherent in remotely controlling robots or other tools.

Designer biosensor can detect antibiotic production by microbes

(North Carolina State University) Researchers from North Carolina State University have engineered designer biosensors that can detect antibiotic molecules of interest. The biosensors are a first step toward creating antibiotic-producing 'factories' within microbes such as E. coli.

Neuroscientists find 'gatekeeper' in itching sensations plays no role in pain transmission

(North Carolina State University) A neurotransmitter study in mice found that BNP is involved in relaying itching sensations but not pain. A better understanding of pain and itch pathways could help researchers develop targeted therapies for diseases with chronic itching, including multiple sclerosis and kidney failure.

Climate's effects on flowers critical for bumble bees

(North Carolina State University) In a study that shows the importance of climate change on critical pollinators, North Carolina State University researchers found that earlier and longer flowering seasons can have poor effects on the bumble bees that rely on these flowers to live and thrive.

Study finds driving speed affected when a driver's mind 'wanders'

Research from North Carolina State University finds that driving speed fluctuates more when a driver's mind wanders from focusing on the act of driving - and that the outside environment influences how often a driver's mind wanders.

Older drivers adapt their thinking to improve road hazard detection

(North Carolina State University) A recent study finds older drivers adapt their responses in heavy traffic to better identify road hazards.
