Jill Banfield shares her perspective on how the DOE Joint Genome Institute helps advance her research, addressing knowledge gaps related to the roles of subsurface microbial communities in biogeochemical cycling.
ESD’s Carl Steefel was one of the key developers of Chombo-Crunch, a reactive flow code that could enhance efforts toward carbon sequestration and greater safety in the oil and gas industry.
ESD’s Javier Ceja-Navarro was featured this past week (May 7, 2015) in a video presentation within a Gizmodo article, on the potential of biofuel derived from insects—“a strange new future for agriculture and energy production.”
ESD’s Dan Feldman, Bill Collins, and Margaret Torn recently observed carbon dioxide’s greenhouse effect at the Earth’s surface for the first time. Their work was published online this past week in Nature.
In a recent Science News article, ESD’s Jonny Rutqvist is mentioned prominently as the leader of several modeling studies investigating the possibility of geologic carbon sequestration causing earthquakes.
ESD‘s Gary Andersen and former ESD scientist Todd DeSantis are mentioned in a recent (February 2015) Fast Company magazine article on Second Genome, the South San Francisco biotechnology company focusing on the microbiome.
ESD Ecology Department Head Gary Andersen appeared on the KQED production Food Forward SOS, shown this past Friday evening, September 12, to discuss the function and importance of microbial systems within topsoil.
ESD’s Ernie Majer is one of several scientists interviewed in a recent National Geographic article about the spike in earthquakes in Oklahoma, and its potential connection to oil and gas wastewater disposal.
In a recent radio interview, ESD’s Travis O’Brien and other climate scientists discuss the importance of fog, with O’Brien calling for (and applauding the recent development of) more accurate fog forecasting within climate models.
Hoi-Ying Holman and her team of scientists have won a 2014 R&D 100 award, for their Multiplex Chemotyping Microarray (MCM). The MCM generates collections of microscopic biomolecule or particle assemblies accurately and reproducibly.
