Biochemist Jennifer Doudna and biophysicist Eva Nogales led a study that showed how a CRISPR-Cas surveillance complex in the bacterial immune system is able to target specific sites on an RNA molecule for the destruction of invaders.
Berkeley Lab Director Paul Alivisatos today announced his intention to leave his position once a successor can be recruited to lead the Lab. Alivisatos will return to his research and teaching activities as a senior scientist in the Materials Sciences Division and as a faculty member on the UC...Read more about Paul Alivisatos to step down as Lab Director
Jeffrey Long and colleagues have made a major leap forward in carbon-capture technology with a material that can efficiently remove carbon from the ambient air of a submarine as readily as from the polluted emissions of a coal-fired power plant.
Jamie Cate and fellow researchers at the Energy Biosciences Institute (EBI) have found a way to increase the production of fuels and other chemicals from biomass fermented by yeast.
Jennifer Doudna and James Nuñez led a study that revealed how bacteria “steal” genetic information from foreign invaders for use in their own immunological memory system.
