Scientists at Berkeley Lab and their collaborators developed a machine learning technique to discover obesity-related mixed chemical exposure patterns associated with environmental health risk in the general U.S. population. To assess this, they used indicators like body mass index and waist circumference.
The Advanced Biofuels and Bioproducts Process Development Unit (ABPDU) hosted its 2023 Industry Listening Day on March 7, 2023. Representatives from 41 entities, including 28 companies, participated in the event.
The U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) Bioenergy Technologies Office (BETO) announced the selection of five external collaborations totaling over $3.7 million to conduct research and development needed to accelerate the U.S. biomanufacturing sector. Working with scientists in the Agile BioFoundry (ABF) consortium, these industry and academic groups will leverage national laboratory capabilities to address challenges in biomanufacturing.
The Advanced Biofuels and Bioproducts Process Development Unit (ABPDU), a research facility funded by Department of Energy’s (DOE) Bioenergy Technologies Office (BETO), collaborated with BETO’s Bioprocessing Separations Consortium, Argonne National Laboratory, and Amyris Inc., a leading synthetic biology company, to develop new experimental setups and technologies to advance volatile product capture.
Aindrila Mukhopadhyay, the science deputy for the Biosciences Area’s Biological Systems and Engineering (BSE) Division and vice president for Biofuels and Bioproducts at the Joint BioEnergy Institute (JBEI), has been recognized for her “exceptional contributions to the field of microbial engineering for the sustainable production of biofuels and bioproducts, particularly in optimizing and using functional genomics approaches.”
