Cellulase enzymes found in nature from sources such as wood-degrading fungi or in cows’ stomach compartments form one of the key catalysts for breaking down plant biomass to make biofuels. But, they remain quite expensive. Compute allocations from the Extreme Science and Engineering Discovery Environment (XSEDE) have made a breakthrough possible that could have big cost implications.
The Federal Highway Administration has listed UT’s Traffic Signal Academy as one of its recommended training programs. The administration says the course, developed by UT’s Center for Transportation Research, offers a comprehensive discussion on a number of important transportation issues.
UT’s Engineering Research Center, CURENT, recently held two Family Engineering Nights at Lake City Elementary School and Green Magnet Academy. The events connected about 400 students and their families to engineering exhibits which included solar cars, paper helicopters and homemade circuits.
The Royal Swedish Academy of Sciences has awarded the Nobel Prize in physics to Peter Higgs and Francois Englert for their research on what has come to be called the Higgs field, which gives elementary particles mass. The UT High Energy Physics group has been part of the hunt for the Higgs boson since 2006, working with the Large Hadron Collider at CERN.
