UGA's recently established Institute for Cybersecurity and Privacy uses anti-malware software developed by the institute’s network security expert, associate professor of computer science Roberto Perdisci, to detect malware downloads on its own networks - a model other institutions are begiining to follow: “Your antivirus software installed on your computer to protect against malware attacks will always be behind,” Perdisci says.

What role does today's college campus play in broader sustainability efforts? Our scientists and engineers conduct research and develop bench-scale projects that show promise; other researchers document the effects of mankind on the planet, generate new ways of thinking about waste, urban infrastructure and even visual representations of society's conflicting interests and desires.

More potentially transformative new research from the department of genetics, this time in the realm of transportation fuels. For sometime now, biofuels have held great promise - and have been the focus of great controversy.

Very interesting juxtaposition of forces arrayed this week, highlighted in separate articles, connected by a major weather event and both predicated on an issue critical to the state and UGA: economic development. First, the Columns article, Downtown Connector, about the importance of linking the new Office of Economic Development to important partners in Atlanta: Sixty-five miles is the distance between UGA's hub in Athens and Atlanta, Georgia'…
