The initiative will support internships, training programs, and mentoring opportunities.
A recent study by Joint BioEnergy Institute (JBEI) researchers reveals which crop-based feedstocks offer the greatest potential for a plentiful, cost-competitive, renewable alternative to petroleum-based jet fuel, while also maximizing atmospheric carbon removal.
Scientists at the Joint BioEnergy Institute (JBEI) are collaborating with X – the moonshot incubator led by Google parent company Alphabet – to not only skip the problematic plastic separation step, but also make the final product better for the planet.
Tinkering with plant genetics and molecular biology gives Biosciences graduate researcher Lorenzo Washington a window into the complex, messy world of plant-microbe relationships. His passions outside of the lab, like practicing judo and tending his home garden, help Washington greet his experiments each day with renewed creativity and resilience.
Anne Villacastin placed first and was also selected as People’s Choice in the Berkeley Lab Research SLAM competition on September 21, 2023. Villacastin, a postdoctoral researcher at the Joint BioEnergy Institute (JBEI) and in the Environmental Genomics and Systems Biology (EGSB) Division, detailed her research on sorghum’s potential as a biomanufacturing feedstock. In its sixth … Read more »
