A pair of Clemson scientists has spent the past decade exploring the intricacies of the butterfly proboscis, one of nature’s most multifarious body parts. Their ever-increasing fount of knowledge is expected to eventually lead to manufactured devices that could revolutionize medical procedures and other yet-to-be-conceived applications.
A rumbling robot and several high-flying drones recently made an on-site appearance at Clemson University to burrow through and buzz above 15 acres of experimental sorghum plots containing more than 2,800 replicated entries at Simpson Research Farm.
Clemson University’s Institute of Translational Genomics will soon expand its reach with the addition of a three-year fellowship program designed to recruit and develop future leaders in the burgeoning field of agriculturally oriented computational science.
Millions of acres of magnificent longleaf pine forests that were nearly annihilated a century ago are making a slow yet promising comeback, thanks in part to a team of Clemson University researchers and their collaborators.
The fossil remains of a Triceratops, one of the last great dinosaurs of the Cretaceous period, are on display at the Bob Campbell Geology Museum on the campus of Clemson University.
Clemson scientist Jeffrey Anker and four colleagues have been awarded a five-year, $1.57 million grant from the National Institutes of Health to develop a novel imaging technique and dye-based sensor to detect and monitor bacterial infections on implanted medical devices.
A dangerously prolific invasive ant species called the tawny crazy ant has been spreading throughout the South and now appears to be on the verge of entering South Carolina for the first time. But a team of Clemson University scientists is hot on the trail.
Clemson University researchers are attempting to save South Carolina’s soybean growers millions of dollars each year by investigating alternative methods for reducing damage caused by white-tailed deer.
A team of Clemson University scientists recently conducted an onsite visit with representatives of the U.S. National Whitewater Center to discuss potential tactics to improve and maintain the water quality of the outdoor facility’s manmade whitewater river.
Just when things were looking promising for farmers in most areas of the state, another dry and wicked heat wave has a hold on South Carolina and is starting to squeeze the life out of crops.
For the third straight year, a herd of hungry goats came to Clemson University to devour dense tangles of invasive plants that have plagued portions of the campus for decades.
Clemson University scientists Paul Leonard and Rob Baldwin are part of a collaborative study on how rising sea levels and increased urbanization — both now and in the future — are joining forces to fragment habitat connectivity across the region. Leonard, Baldwin and four other co-authors contributed to the paper, “Landscape Connectivity Losses Due to Sea Level Rise and Land Use Change,” about wildlife habitat connectivity in the Southeast that has been published in the journal Animal Conservation.
The first step of an ongoing-process designed to bring a valuable heirloom wheat back from the brink of extinction has been completed with flying colors.
Clemson University scientist Cheryl Ingram-Smith has been awarded a three-year, $424,000 grant from the National Institutes of Health (NIH) to study the inner workings of a parasite that causes 50 million cases of amoebic dysentery each year and kills 50,000 to 100,000.
Clemson's Coastal Research and Education Center, in conjunction with the Carolina Gold Rice Foundation, continues to expand efforts to revive nearly extinct crops tied through the centuries to the South.
