Title: Research Horizons [Volume 20, Number 2, Winter 2003]
Author: Sanders, Jane M. ; Toon, John ; Goettling, Gary
Abstract: Signals in the Sea - Researchers probe the ocean depths to learn how plants and animals communicate using chemical signals. Interdisciplinary training prepares students to address broad range of scientific questions. Marine organisms protect themselves from predators by eating toxic plants. Aquatic animals track food and mates by their odors. Microcrustaceans overcome the odds to find the right mate. Some zooplankton species depend on strong sense of "taste" to find the right mate. Organic chemist's contribution is essential to biological studies of aquatic chemical signaling. Microbiologist examines fish guts to learn if he can exploit chemical signaling for environmental cleanup. Monsoon Forecasting - Research produces 20- to 25-day forecasts that may help increase crop yields in monsoon regions. Sterilizing with Sound - Acoustic technique could disinfect medical instruments without heat or harsh chemicals. Shining the Light, Mixing the Water - Researchers develop more effective, less costly method of disinfecting water used in food processing. Faculty Profile: Edward Reedy - Career Highlights - Retiring GTRI director reflects on 33 years of doing what he enjoyed. In on the Ground Floor - Georgia Tech VentureLab's Technology Day showcases faculty innovations moving toward commercialization.
