Claim: computer model says thawing permafrost will run a lopsided carbon game in the Arctic

From DOE/Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory Computer sims: In climatic tug of war, carbon released from thawing permafrost wins handily There’s a carbon showdown brewing in the Arctic as Earth’s climate changes. On one side, thawing permafrost could release enormous amounts of long-frozen carbon into the atmosphere. On the opposing side, as high-latitude regions warm, plants…

Scientists Capture the First Microscopy Images of Ultra-Small Bacteria Believed to Be the Smallest Life Possible

3 weeks agoHumor / odd : Laughing Squid

Scientists from the Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory and the University of California, Berkeley have captured the first detailed microscopy images of ultra-small bacteria believed to be some of the smallest life possible. The bacteria are so small that about 150,000 of them could fit on the tip of a human hair. Samples of groundwater were collected […]

Behold, the Smallest Form of Life Ever Seen

They're called "ultra-small bacteria," but "ultra-small" doesn't seem to do them justice. Instead, try "about as small as life can get," write researchers at the Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory. They managed to capture the first-ever image of such an organism, no small feat given that the cells have an average...

These Ultra-Small Bacteria May Be The Tiniest Life Forms On Earth

3 weeks agoNews : Huffington Post

So, this is about as small as life can get. Scientists from Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory and the University of California, Berkeley have captured the first detailed microscopic images of so-called "ultra-small bacteria" that are believed to represent the lowest size limit possible for life on Earth.

Claim: California’s policies can significantly cut greenhouse gas emissions through 2030

New Berkeley Lab model finds state will meet 2020 reduction goals From DOE/Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory A new model of the impact of California’s existing and proposed policies on its greenhouse gas (GHG) reduction goals suggests that the state is on track to meet 2020 goals, and could achieve greater emission reductions by 2030, but…

For important tumor-suppressing protein, context is key

Scientists from the US Department of Energy's Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory (Berkeley Lab) have learned new details about how an important tumor-suppressing protein, called p53, binds to the human genome. As with many things in life, they found that context makes a big difference. read more

Latest supercomputers enable high-resolution climate models, truer simulation of extreme weather

Not long ago, it would have taken several years to run a high-resolution simulation on a global climate model. But using some of the most powerful supercomputers now available, Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory (Berkeley Lab) climate scientist Michael Wehner was able to complete a run in just three months. read more

Synthetic biology could be the key to manned space missions

5 months agoTechnology / Gadgets : Gizmag

The secret to pulling off long-term manned space missions is biomanufacturing – at least, that's the argument presented by scientists at Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory (Berkeley Lab) who have used synthetic biology to produce sustainable alternatives to fuel and anti-malaria drugs.
