Can new DNA science help keep our fish safe (NPR)

The samples will be taken back to the Oregon Hatchery Research Center to be filtered. Then the filters will be taken to the Center for Genome Research and Biocomputing at Oregon State University, where Weitemier works. Even if they did capture the synthetic DNA, other issues could arise.

Trump agenda threatens US legacy of science diplomacy (Nature)

“I firmly believe in the power of science diplomacy,” says Jane Lubchenco, a marine biologist at Oregon State University in Corvallis who served as head of the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration and later as a ‘science envoy’ for the state department. “It has huge potential for sharing knowledge, for bringing goodwill, for resulting in tangible outcomes that can benefit people’s lives and the opportunity to help build scientific capacity.”

How rising temperatures are affecting Oregon (Sustainable Life)

The Oregon Climate Change Research Institute, which combines the state’s leading scientists in the field based at Oregon State University, has released its third assessment of how a changing climate is affecting the state.

Where’s that chicken drumstick? Doggone it! (Belfast Telgraph)

A recent study has suggested that pet dogs are losing touch with many of their basic natural instincts. In one test, for example, researchers at Oregon State University presented a ‘puzzle box’ containing food to a group of dogs and a group of wolves.

Oregon State University researchers discover molecule that could fight ‘superbug’ bacteria (NBC)

Now, researchers at Oregon State University have made a breakthrough discovery that could save millions of lives, and the discovery is getting worldwide attention.

‘Alien’ insect in amber prompts science to add whole new branch to family tree (Christian Science Monitor)

Even more intriguing, two Oregon State University researchers say the bug is unlike anything entomologists have ever seen before. In their paper published in December in the journal Cretaceous Research, co-authors George Poinar Jr. and Alex Brown say the new insect, which they named Aethiocarenus burmanicus, warrants its own scientific order.

Study: Predators might play major role in chinook declines (Kitsap Sun)

Today, the Salish Sea — including Puget Sound and the inland waters of British Columbia — is believed to have one of the highest densities of harbor seals of any place in the world, noted the study’s lead author, Brandon Chasco of Oregon State University.

Globe-trotting pollutants raise some cancer risks 4 times higher than predicted (Newsroom America)

Scientists said the new estimates more closely match actual measurements of the pollutants from more than 300 urban and rural settings. The study was done by scientists at Oregon State University, the Department of Energy’s Pacific Northwest National Laboratory, or PNNL, and Peking University. The research was primarily supported by PNNL.

Blue pancakes? An environmentally friendly grain takes root (OPB)

That’s where Salish Blue comes in. It’s a perennial, wheat-like grain that’s adapted to wet weather, and it’s different from previous attempts because it’s genetically stable, says Oregon State University researcher Michael Flowers, who was not involved in the study.

Oregon State University team completes sequencing of beaver genome (KATU)

Drinks after work and $30,000 in crowdfunding research money led to the successful sequencing of Oregon- and Oregon State University’s – signature animal, the beaver.

Scientists develop new technique for safer nuclear fuel and better waste treatment (News Nation)

 A new technique has been developed by scientists to extract uranium more safely and efficiently, an advance that may lead to cleaner nuclear fuel and better waste treatment. Researchers at Oregon State University (OSU) in the US uses soap-like chemicals known as surfactants to extract uranium from an aqueous solution into a kerosene solution in the form of hollow clusters. (see also ChemEurope, SiliconIndia)

Read seed packets to get the right plants for your wants and needs (Oregonian)

But before grabbing a handful and heading to the checkout stand, take a few minutes to read the envelope. What’s on the outside of a seed packet is almost as important as what’s on the inside, said Weston Miller, a horticulturist with Oregon State University Extension Service.
