Apply to the Geodata Science for Professionals Master's Program

March 15, 2019

Employers seek in today’s advanced Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics workforce skills in analytics and data science, including Big Data (Denecke, D. et al. 2017, Council of Graduate Schools). In the United States, however, geoscience curricula are in general not designed to capitalize on the digital revolution, especially the enormous growth in data science. Thus, there has been a disconnect between the jobs of the future and the curricula of the present.

Energy demand, sources will change with Indiana's climate

February 20, 2019

Hoosiers will heat homes and businesses less but rely more on air conditioning as Indiana’s climate warms. They’ll also get more of their energy from natural gas and renewable sources as those become more cost-effective throughout the rest of the century.

We can breed honeybees to be cleaner -and it may help save the species, study says

February 20, 2019

The key to saving the honeybees might be in their genes. A new study published in the journal Genome Biology and Evolution found that honeybees have "a minimum of 73 genes associated with hygienic behavior." Those that have the gene are prone to clean the colony by removing sick or dead bees that may carry diseases that lead to colony collapse disorder.

New method to detect cancer cells faster, potentially improving outcomes

February 20, 2019

The days – or even weeks – spent waiting for the results of a cancer-screening test can feel like an eternity. Especially when early diagnosis and quick action are tied to better outcomes. Now, a new technique to analyze proteins expressed on cancer cells shows promise in more rapidly detecting these cell types. “Pathogen or cancer cell identification often relies on culturing a sample, which can take several days,” said Darci Trader, an assistant professor of medicinal chemistry and molecular pharmacology in Purdue University’s College of Pharmacy, who led the research team. “We have recently developed a method to screen one-bead-one-compound libraries against biological targets such as proteins or antibodies.”

Purdue water, soil analysis technology may help improve cleanup and monitoring at contaminated Superfund sites across the U.S.

February 20, 2019

At least 53 million Americans, including about 18 percent of the nation’s children, live less than three miles from a Superfund site, according to the Environmental Protection Agency. Superfund sites, such as the Gowanus Canal in New York City, have been identified by the EPA as being polluted by highly dangerous wastes. A Purdue water and soil analysis technology may help improve cleanup and monitoring at contaminated Superfund sites across the U.S.
