While helping small farms in Alabama, researchers at The University of Alabama and the University of West Alabama aim to help microgreens, young and tender vegetables packed with flavor and nutrition, extend their freshness after harvesting, along the way improving its value as both a food and agricultural product.
Members of The University of Alabama faculty will be honored for their research and creative contributions at the upcoming Faculty Research Day.
With a grant from the federal Environmental Protection Agency, researchers from environmental engineering and geology will build a model to quantify the extent of untreated raw sewage discharges from homes throughout five counties in the Black Belt, an economically depressed region in the state.
Researchers at The University of Alabama discovered how a common skin bacteria wards off viruses by leveraging cellular processes normally not considered part of any immune system. This discovery constitutes another milestone in understanding how to harness bacterial viruses to combat antibiotic-resistant infections.
The success of illegal drug trafficking through wider and wider swaths of Central America is a consequence of law enforcement activity to curtail it, according to new research led by The University of Alabama.
In a partnership with federal, state and local agencies, The University of Alabama is leading a more than $16 million project to transform traffic operations in West Alabama and provide leading-edge research to address societal transportation needs.
