Mizzou Engineer develops software tool to investigate root growth

Arabidopsis thaliana roots growing in culture. A Mizzou Engineer has developed a software tool that could give farmers greener thumbs. The tool could help enable them to develop crop cultivars that are drought resistant, ensuring roots can reach falling water tables, adapt to warmer temperatures and be more resilient to environmental changes. Kannappan Palaniappan, a [...]
Meet Jim Noble

Meet Jim Noble

The COVID-19 pandemic caused lasting disruptions in worldwide supply chains. Car lots are empty. Paper products are limited at some stores. And holiday shopping has already begun in anticipation of empty shelves. Meet Jim Noble, an expert in logistics and supply chain operation optimization who could see that this was going to happen. Noble is [...]
Mizzou Engineer studies perceptions of autonomous transportation

Mizzou Engineer studies perceptions of autonomous transportation

Autonomous mobility services include public transportation, as well as self-driving cars. Photo by Brock Wegner | Unsplash Before the public will fully embrace autonomous mobility services, companies need to increase people’s trust in the technology. That’s one take-away from a case study Assistant Professor Sabreena Anowar and colleagues conducted in Singapore. Anowar, who has joint [...]
