Biosciences researchers are among the recipients of four new DOE awards. Two awards will focus on reducing carbon emissions while producing bioenergy. The other two are aimed at understanding the role of microbiomes in the biogeochemical cycling of elements like carbon.
The projects of 17 Biosciences Area scientists and engineers received funding through the FY22 Laboratory Directed Research and Development (LDRD) program.
In the latest episode of JGI’s monthly podcast, Genome Insider, Alison Takemura interviews Setsuko Wakao and Kris Niyogi, biologists at UC Berkeley and in Berkeley Lab’s Molecular Biophysics and Integrated Bioimaging (MBIB) Division. In this 20-minute episode, they discuss their research on a tiny group of algae with insanely gorgeous exterior shells.
