A new study, led by University of Minnesota Twin Cities engineering researchers, shows that the stiffness of protein fibers in tissues, like collagen, are a key component in controlling the movement of cells.
The Carlson School of Management research showed replicated and expanded on what was previously found: bronze medalists were more likely to exhibit a smile than silver medalists, while gold medalists were happier than other medalists.
Associate Professor Tracy Twine in the College of Food, Agricultural and Natural Resources Sciences is available to comment on the heatwave and what it means for the Twin Cities and other metropolitan areas in the Midwest.
A new tool developed by a University of Minnesota research team allows farmers to create a budget balance sheet of any nitrogen reduction plans and see the economic and environmental cost, return and margins, all customized to fields under their management.
A study by the University of Minnesota College of Veterinary Medicine found that household cats were more susceptible than dogs to natural infection of SARS-CoV-2, the virus that causes COVID-19, early on during the pandemic in Minnesota.
University of Minnesota researchers, along with colleagues at institutions from the University of Kansas (KU), University of California-Irvine (UCI) and others, found that wetland restoration and construction along waterways are the most cost-effective way to reduce nitrate and sediment loads in large streams and rivers.
With the rapid growth in online grocery shopping, researchers at the University of Minnesota School of Public Health (SPH) sought to identify design features online grocery stores should consider to support the increasing number of Americans striving to eat healthy for weight loss.
A recent study from researchers at the University of Minnesota is among the first to examine how different socio-demographic groups used telehealth, outpatient (clinic), emergency department and inpatient (hospital) care to test for SARS-CoV-2, the virus that causes COVID-19.
Land managers are increasingly turning to livestock such as cattle, sheep, goats and horses to manage unwanted weeds in the Midwestern U.S. and across the country. Researchers at University of Minnesota’s College of Veterinary Medicine and the College of Food, Agricultural and Natural Resource Sciences (CFANS) synthesized the results of 70 individual studies to discover if this strategy is effective.
