Iowa State's department of agricultural and biosystems engineering is now ranked No. 1 in the annual ranking of graduate programs by U.S. News and World Report. The program also climbed to the top of the magazine's undergraduate rankings last fall. The magazine bases its graduate rankings on expert opinions about program strength and statistical measures of a program's faculty, research and students.
Iowa State University researchers have developed a new web application that makes it quick and easy for people to use 3-D printers to make terrain models of any place on Earth. Their idea -- they call it TouchTerrain -- could be a powerful teaching tool in geology classrooms around the world.
A new study from an ISU scientist shows the indirect impacts invasive species can have in an ecosystem. The study focused on the brown tree snake, whose introduction to the forests of Guam has led to difficulties for local tree species to reproduce.
Michael Newton will be Iowa State's next chief of police. Newton has served in the University of Wisconsin, Madison, police department since 1998. His appointment is effective April 3.
Iowa State University agronomists show nitrogen fertilizer feeds healthy soil in corn and soybean production
New Iowa State University research shows nitrogen fertilizer plays an essential role in maintaining soil carbon in corn and soybean fields. Adequate soil carbon is one of the most important metrics of soil health.
Iowa State engineers are partners in a new, $140 million national manufacturing institute dedicated to finding ways to reuse materials and save energy. The Iowa State researchers are expected to work with Iowa companies on projects involving materials recycling and manufacturing processes.
The trucking industry loses billions of dollars and wastes millions of hours each year sitting idle in traffic. Helping drivers avoid congestion would increase productivity and improve safety, says a team of Iowa State University and industry researchers.
Iowa State University researchers detail genetic mechanisms that govern growth and drought response in plants
New Iowa State University research outlines how the genetic pathways that govern growth and stress response in plants sometimes clash. The research could lead to better performing crop varieties.
