Late last December, the Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources revised a statement on their website about climate change, rescinding a portion stating human activity could be a cause.In response, a group of UW-Madison scientists issued a public letter detailing the DNR’s factual inaccuracies in the revised statement and irresponsibility in drastically changing the wording.

What’s the real difference between Mac and PC? What are stem cells?
With a new research initiative, UW-Madison hopes to garner new research tackling the microbiome and its effects on everyday life.
Treating cancer is complex as each tumor differs greatly from another. This is due to their genetic makeups.
Why are some winters worse than others? What is black ice?
Fermented products can range anywhere from beer to sourdough bread to soy sauce to ethanol fuels. In the microbial realm of fermentation, the process is fundamentally the same: Microorganisms such as bacteria and yeast metabolize sugars into alcohol. But often, the process can be plagued by a major drawback.
Professor Ive Hermans has a different philosophy when it comes to running a research group and laboratory full of brilliant students.Most graduate advisers simply tell their students what to do and expect them to follow their directions to a T.
The Badgerloop team revealed their pod Tuesday for the first time at the Wisconsin Institute for Discovery to eager transportation enthusiasts, including University of Wisconsin-Madison students, industry sponsors and community members, in preparation for the SpaceX Hyperloop competition this coming January.
By mimicking natural molecular pathways in the human body, scientists at the University of Wisconsin-Madison developed molecular tools that could regulate gene expression.Natural transcription factors bind to genetic sequences and trigger the expression of different genes, which later produce different proteins.
In the final episode of this semester’s Sciencecast: Climate Change Series, we talk to Dr. Jonathan Martin, professor of Atmospheric and Oceanic Sciences at the University of Wisconsin-Madison.
Split brain activity allows you to listen and drive, simultaneously. Five UW faculty members elected AAAS Fellows. New model to predict weather.
Are all snowflakes really unique? I heard eating snow dehydrates you. Is this true?
Innovating transportation is the goal of one student organization at the University of Wisconsin-Madison.
Graduate students of Dr. Ansari's lab design synthetic transcription factors.
UW-Madison fifth-year student Donale Richards is one of the few students of color who majors in biological systems engineering.
In episode five, we focus on sustainable agriculture and how the food we eat impacts the environment. Instead of meeting with UW experts, we turn to students who are knowledgeable about food insecurity, gardening and farming and the connections between agriculture and climate change.
Lake Mendota had once been the home for swimming, sailing and fishing, among many other recreational and scenic activities. But since the discovery of zebra mussels in the lake by a limnology lab last fall, the lake’s environment has shifted, resulting in changed food sources for fish and less attractive experiences for water activities at the Memorial Union terrace on a summer day.Throughout the summer following the zebra mussel discovery, Lake Mendota had become completely invaded by the mussels, with amounts ranging from 10 zebra mussels per square meter to 60,000 in some areas of the lake, which has created an imbalanced ecosystem, resulting in many future changes to the lake’s ecology and aesthetics.
UW professors develop sensors to detect harmful materials: University of Wisconsin-Madison professors of chemical and biological engineering have recently developed new ways to detect explosives, pollutants and chemical disease markers.
Welcome back to Sciencecast: Climate Change Series!In our fourth episode, we talk with Dr. Sharon Dunwoody, professor emerita in the University of Wisconsin-Madison’s School of Journalism and Mass Communication, and focus on science communication and journalism.
