Casey Doyle Aims to Elevate Dialogue About LGBTQ Rights Through Art

When Casey Doyle contacted a Palouse landowner about using his wheat field to perform his artwork — bringing together two large-scale sculptures he made of diamond engagement rings — he didn’t know what to expect. “I didn’t tell him, ‘I’m trying to do this queer-themed performance in the field’ — because you never know who you’re dealing with,” said Doyle, an associate professor in the University of Idaho’s College of Art and Architecture Art and Design Program. But what Doyle was doing was simply advocating for an underrepresented segment of the population. Read more.

Genetics Behind Fruit Fly Courtship

College of Science Dean Ginger E. Carney and colleagues published a study in the journal Genetics on microRNAs, which are small molecules that can inhibit the conversion of genetic information into proteins. The team wanted to know how microRNAs affect sex-specific behaviors in male courtship rituals. By eliminating different microRNAs in fruit flies, they identified specific microRNAs that affect male-female and male-male courtship behavior. Manipulating the microRNAs affected the males' neurons, inhibiting their ability to use smell to choose mates.

The Next 50 Years of Water in Idaho

Center for Resilient Communities' Andrew Kliskey, John Abatzoglou, Lilian Alessa, Crystal Kolden, Sarah Gilmore and Gary Austin and Department of Geography's Brandon Moore published a study in the journal Environmental Science and Policy. Using population and climate projections, they projected, in Idaho for the next 50 years, the amount of water available each year will remain relatively steady while the timing of water availability will change.
