    published on Thu, 28 May 2015 02:37:19 GMT
    For more than a decade, biologist Mariam Barlow has been working under the theory that administering antibiotics on a rotating basis could be a solution to antibiotic resistance. After years of research, Barlow had lots of data, but she needed a more precise way to make sense of it all - something that was so specific it could easily be used to treat patients....

  • Penn and UC Merced researchers match physical and virtual atomic friction experiments
    published on Fri, 08 May 2015 15:26:46 GMT
    Technological limitations have made studying friction on the atomic scale difficult, but researchers at the University of Pennsylvania and the University of California, Merced, have now made advances in that quest on two fronts. By speeding up a real atomic force microscope and slowing down a simulation of one, the team has conducted the first atomic-scale experiments on friction at overlapping speeds....
  • Bowing to Pressure, Starbucks Quits Sourcing Water in Drought-Stricken California
    published on Fri, 08 May 2015 14:46:00 GMT

  • Computer Scientists May Have Just Found A Solution For Deadly Superbugs
    published on Fri, 08 May 2015 06:23:47 GMT
    A computer program designed by two scientists could one day be a weapon in the fight against antibiotic resistance in bacteria. Using complex algorithms, biologist Miriam Barlow of the University of California, Merced and mathematician Kristina Crona of American University in Washington, D.C. were able to prevent and actually reverse antibiotic resistance in a lab setting....
