Two years ago, Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory (Berkeley Lab) researchers developed OpenMSI--the most advanced computational tool for analyzing and visualizing mass spectrometry imaging (MSI) data. Now, OpenMSI has been licensed to support ImaBiotech's Multimaging(tm) technology in the field of pharmaceutical and cosmetic research and development.

Researchers at the U.S. Department of Energy's Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory (Berkeley Lab) have engineered a strain of bacteria that enables a "one-pot" method for producing advanced biofuels from a slurry of pre-treated plant material. read more
Interesting results, but the policy recommendations seem like killing an ant with a sledgehammer. In the first study of its kind, Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory (Berkeley Lab) researcher Alan Meier, working with Yuche Chen of the National Renewable Energy Laboratory, have estimated the fuel consumption penalty of this popular and...
There’s nothing like a government incentive to grow green energy. And that’s why the Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory is saying that renewable portfolio standards enacted by at least half the states is responsible for 60 percent of non-hydro renewable sources. Those green standards vary by state but generally require utilities to offer a certain percent […]
Scientists with the U.S. Department of Energy's Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory (Berkeley Lab) have taken a big step toward the practical application of "valleytronics," which is a new type of electronics that could lead to faster...Show More Summary
An international team working at the Department of Energy's Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory (Berkeley Lab) has captured the first high-resolution 3-D images from individual double-helix DNA segments attached at either end to gold nanoparticles. The images detail the flexible structure of the DNA segments, which appear as nanoscale jump ropes. read more
