Accidental Discovery Dramatically Improves Electrical Conductivity
PULLMAN, Wash.—Quite by accident, Washington State University researchers have achieved a 400-fold increase in the electrical conductivity of a crystal simply by exposing it to light. The effect, which lasted for days after the light was turned off, could dramatically improve the performance of devices like computer chips. WSU doctoral student Marianne Tarun chanced upon the discovery when she noticed that the conductivity of some strontium titanate shot up after it was left out one day. At first, she and her fellow researchers thought the sample was contaminated, but a series of experiments showed the effect was from light.

New Paper Released About Perennial Wheat
Perennial grains--one of the largest innovations in the 10,000 year history of agriculture--could be here in the next two decades, according to scientists from Washington State University and other institutions writing in the current issue of Science. The crops, which reestablish themselves every growing season, can be raised with less fertilizer, herbicide, fuel, and erosion than grains planted annually. They're particularly promising as half the world's growing population lives off marginal land at risk of being degraded by annual grain production.

Major Study Documents Nutritional and Food Safety Benefits of Organic Farming
PULLMAN, Wash.—The largest study of its kind has found that organic foods and crops have a suite of advantages over their conventional counterparts, including more antioxidants and fewer, less frequent pesticide residues. The study looked at an unprecedented 343 peer-reviewed publications comparing the nutritional quality and safety of organic and conventional plant-based foods, including fruits, vegetables, and grains. The study team applied sophisticated meta-analysis techniques to quantify differences between organic and non-organic foods.

Studying 'Trich': The STD You Probably Haven't Heard of
PULLMAN, Wash. --Trichomonas vaginalis, or sometimes referred to as "trich", could be considered the number one sexually transmitted disease that most people don't know about. That's according to Washington State University Professor John Alderete. He's been studying the STD for more than 30 years, and said the infection really catches groups he talks to off-guard. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, an estimated incidence of 7.4 million new cases occurs each year in women and men. Others in the STD clinical community place the incidence at close to 12 million this year, said Alderete. "It is now, in respect to incidence, the number one sexually transmitted disease agent in our county and worldwide."

Key To Human Heart Disease Could Lie With Hibernating Grizzly Bears
Wednesday, June 23, 2010 Contact: Lynne Nelson, Associate Professor of Cardiology, Veterinary Medicine Teaching Hospital, 509-335-0789, olnelson@wsu.edu Adam Wallberg, Intern, WSU News Service, 509-335-0487, adam.wallberg@email.wsu.edu PULLMAN, Wash. - Washington State University's Bear Center is currently looking at hibernation and how a bear can survive with a very low heart rate for an extended period of time. "Humans or other animals could not do what the bears do in hibernation without developing heart failure," said Dr. Lynne Nelson, associate professor of Cardiology. "A bear's heart rate is 80-90 beats per minute when active, but when hibernating its heart rate drops to 15-18 beats per minute." "You can see the blood settling in the heart, and you can see actual... what looks like the beginning of clot formation, but they don't actually form clots," Nelson said. The echocardiograms performed on the bears helps Nelson image the heart. It also provides her with other information such as cardiac calculations, heart rate and how much blood the heart is pumping. When asked about their progress Nelson said, "It's slow but ongoing, these animals only do what you need them to do once every year, during the winter." Nelson said they will be finishing up a portion of the research this year and then hope to move on to clinical type trials.

Ancient DNA - Bringing the Past to Life (Extended Version)
Taking archeology a step beyond traditional pottery shards, Brian Kemp analyzes ancient DNA (aDNA) from bones, teeth, and desiccated feces (coprolites) to help bring prehistoric Native American cultures alive in ways never before possible. As a molecular anthropologist, Kemp compares archeological findings with genetic information to detect past demographic shifts, population interactions, and movements throughout the Americas. By plotting aDNA together with artifacts in the ground, specific tribes in the Southwest can be seen to virtually travel across the high desert through the eons. The picture Kemp paints seems so real that one can almost hear the hunter-gatherer songs and shouts drifting in the air. Reconstructing the initial migration of humans into the Americas and unraveling their ensuing 15,000 years of prehistory is Kemp's primary focus. His research also reveals direct connections between these ancient cultures and modern populations living in the Southwest today. Through the study of ancient trash piles—or middens—Kemp has discovered the earliest evidence of turkey domestication and other ways that early humans influenced the current genetic composition of animal species. Studying the genetics of ancient fur seals in Alaska, for example, enables Kemp to reconstruct portions of human behavior that would not be available otherwise. For all of its potential, aDNA is notoriously difficult to retrieve and identify. Through their daily research challenges, Kemp and his team have discovered novel ways to remove contamination and improve the recovery of genetic data from ancient remains. Their findings have a direct impact on the forensic sciences, helping to create better methods for identifying crime victims and, in many cases, connecting people with their loved ones.

Vampires! The Psychology, Science, and Impact of a Literary Monster
PULLMAN, Wash.—Vampires are a hot topic in pop culture as the HBO series "True Blood" and the "Twilight Saga" film series take over every corner of the media. But the influence of vampires has been around for centuries. Anne Stiles, a Washington State University assistant professor of English, has been looking at how vampires reflected Victorian society, and how science and the mythical creatures influenced each other. She said it all comes down to our souls and psychology. Starting in the 19th Century, said Stiles, scientists made increasingly successful attempts to localize specific emotional, intellectual, and behavioral functions in particular regions of the brain.

Research Looks at Bat Sounds and How the Winged Mammals Process Them
VANCOUVER, Wash. A room full of bats doesn't sound like something you'd want in your building, but Christine Portfors at Washington State University Vancouver thinks the opposite. The associate professor of biological sciences said bats are a great animal to study, because they act a lot like humans. She said getting down to the neurology of brain processes in bats will open doors to more understanding of human audiological design. She said undergraduate and graduate students are a key part of her research, as they help prepare experiments and analyze sounds collected from bats.

Keeping the Fields Green: Researching Diseases of Spinach Seed Plants
MOUNT VERNON, Wash.— Rows of small black pots sit on moveable metal tables inside a greenhouse at the Washington State University Northwestern Washington Research and Extension Center in Mount Vernon. The warm air inside the green house is giving life to spinach plants in the otherwise wet and rainy Skagit Valley. However, a disease has hit some of the plants, and it's up to WSU researchers to figure out how to stop it. The culprit, Fusarium wilt --a soil-dwelling microscopic fungus,-- has been responsible for a decline in available land for spinach seed production in the Pacific Northwest.
