Penn State's renamed One Health Microbiome Center affirms broad expertise

The Microbiome Center in the Huck Institutes of the Life Sciences at Penn State has announced its renaming to the One Health Microbiome Center (OHMC), the first center in the world to integrate "One Health" with the microbiome sciences.

Researcher gets grant to study biofilters to reduce livestock facility methane

A scientist in Penn State’s College of Agricultural Sciences has received a $300,000 grant from the U.S. Department of Agriculture to lead a team conducting research on using biofilters to mitigate methane from enteric emissions produced in livestock facilities.

A mysterious ‘worm tornado’ invaded this N.J. sidewalk. Here’s why.

Move over murder hornets, there’s a new game in town. A “worm tornado” stunned social media users this week, with pictures showing hundreds of worms crowding a Hoboken sidewalk in a bizarre spiral shape.

Flavonoids' presence in sorghum roots may lead to frost-resistant crop

​Flavonoid compounds — produced by the roots of some sorghum plants — positively affect soil microorganisms, according to Penn State researchers, who suggest the discovery is an early step in developing a frost-resistant line of the valuable crop for North American farmers.​
