Two Indiana University Bloomington chemists have received $525,000 from the National Science Foundation to advance research with applications to the emerging field of carbon recycling. IU scientists Steven L. Tait and Kenneth Caulton will combine their expertise in two distinct fields of chemistry — surface chemistry and metal-organic chemistry — to create new catalysts that […]
Biologists at Indiana University have significantly advanced understanding of the genetic pathways that control the appearance of different physical traits in the same species depending on nutritional conditions experienced during development. In many animals, nutrition — not genetic differences — controls the appearance of certain physical traits. Ants and bees, for example, grow into workers […]
