Researchers from the University of Manitoba have developed a simple technique to speed up the time it takes to prepare chickpeas and lentils by exposing them to microwaves before cooking.
The Canada First Research Excellence Fund has awarded the University of Saskatchewan $37.2 million over 7 years for global food security research. The Canadian Light Source is a major partner in this project, providing unique imaging capabilities to advance agricultural leadership.
Scientists are working to produce ultra-clean fuels from them using refined chemical techniques, work made possible by Canadian Light Source techniques.
Researchers have developed a technique to turn nearly any blood into a universal blood type, a development which could transform blood transfusion and human health.
Researchers have developed a new catalyst material that outperforms benchmarks and opens the door to significant advances in petroleum refinement and industrial applications.
It is impossible to treat stroke immediately, even if you have a stroke in-hospital. That means that the best way to protect stroke victims is to understand the mechanisms behind damage after a stroke, and basic research is vital to developing therapies to reduce brain injury and improving stroke victims’ quality of life. That's what Mark Hackett does.
Did you know that microbes leave behind fossil traces? Researchers from the University of Tubingen mimic that action.
What does the leftover phosphorus in the soil looks like? Is it inorganic, bonded to other metals in forms plants can use, or is it mostly organic, which microbes must break down to plant-available forms? And what sources of phosphorus do plants actually rely on?
Mimicking plant cells to build teeny-tiny reactors.
The University of Saskatchewan Beamteam is devoted to uncovering the properties of new and advanced materials. In 2013, five graduate students from the group completed their PhDs and moved on to become professors, develop synchrotron beamlines, and expand the world’s knowledge of advanced materials.
A tsetse fly bites a girl. She becomes itchy, feverish, and her joints ache. Weeks later, she loses coordination and some sensation in her limbs. It becomes difficult to think, to sleep.
As computer chips continue to get smaller and more powerful, the field of electronics is approaching some severe limits.
