The Faculty of Engineering and Mathematics Sciences (EMS) and 12 student ambassadors from the Faculty embark on a unique trip on Thursday 22 June, to explore Western Australia’s remote Broome region. The students will promote computing, engineering and mathematical sciences to high school students in the Kimberley while supporting the annual school sports carnival, the Kimberley Cup.
Screening of lentil genotypes by a global team, including researchers from The University of Western Australia has revealed some significant traits in lentils that will allow the important grain legume to endure increasing global temperatures.
The Achilles’ heel of coral growth is high temperatures, not ocean acidification, according to researchers from The University of Western Australia and the ARC Centre of Excellence for Coral Reef Studies. The research will be presented tomorrow in Canberra at the Coral Reef Futures Symposium.
Western Australia’s innovation, entrepreneurship and research expertise was celebrated last night at The University of Western Australia’s inaugural IQ Awards, held at Crawley's historic Masonic Hall. The event saw three very different projects awarded for their impact and ingenuity.
A first-of-its-kind study led by The University of Western Australia into the ecological value of offshore infrastructure has revealed that subsea pipelines in north-west Australia provide safe havens for commercially important fish.
An international team of scientists and engineers has discovered a solution to a long-standing scientific problem of storing gases in common minerals. It could form the basis for a cheap and efficient way to power hydrogen-fuelled vehicles of the future.
The University of Western Australia has entered a research and development partnership with Ausplow Farming Systems to improve crop yields and machine performance.
Ausplow will test various configurations of their DBS D260-36 matched to a 6000 litre Drawbar mounted Airseeder for seeding in the wide-ranging landscapes at UWA Farm Ridgefield, the University’s 1600 hectare farm near Pingelly.
Congratulations to Assoc/Professor Tim Inglis and his team on their recent publication on “Rapid susceptibility profiling of carbapenem-resistant Klebsiella pneumoniae” in Scientific Reports.
In this publication, they describe a novel technique called flow cytometry-assisted susceptibility test (FAST) method which combines rapid qualitative susceptible/non-susceptible classification and quantitative antibiotic resistance levels in a single process completed shortly after receipt of a primary isolate in the pathology diagnostic laboratory.
