The system uses wastewater from a nearby treatment facility to heat and cool NIC buildings. It is expected to reduce heating costs by 30 percent and cooling costs by about 25 percent compared to traditional systems.
The DNA of a virus once thought confined to the cells of algae may in fact invade the biological kingdom of mice and men, according to a new study from researchers at Johns Hopkins and UNL.
The prehistory of major ecological shifts spanning multiple millennia can be read in the fine print of microscopic algae, according to a new study led by UNL researchers. The study is based on an examination of more than 100 diatom species found in 7,000-year-old sediment extracted from Montana's Foy Lake.
