DOE Funding Leads to New Technology that is Revolutionizing Chemical AnalysisExternal link

A universal carbon detection technology discovered by researchers at the Catalysis Center for Energy Innovation (CCEI), an Energy Frontier Research Center (EFRC) funded by the Department of Energy (DOE) Office of Basic Energy Sciences, is the basis for a newly developed reactor technology commercialized by Activated Research Company (ARC).

A History of Phage-Host Interactions With Help From CRISPRsExternal link

Using metagenomic datasets produced from the Iron Mountain site in Northern California and customized tools, researchers used bacterial spacer sequences commonly called CRISPRs to link phage and hosts in ecological studies. Read MoreExternal linkage


Getting Water to All the Right Places for Carbon SequestrationExternal link

Using computer simulations, Pacific Northwest National Laboratory's scientists discovered that carbon sequestering minerals can form without water-slurping carbonic acid; rather, a water layer forms on a mineral's surface, leaves atomic voids that carbon dioxide fills, and mineralizes in minutes.

“Shrinking Bull’s-Eye” Algorithm Speeds Up Complex Modeling From Days to HoursExternal link

MIT researchers have developed a new algorithm that vastly reduces the computation of virtually any computational model. Read MoreExternal linkage


Using Powerful Computers, Physicists Uncover Mechanism That Stabilizes Plasma Within TokamaksExternal link

A team of physicists led by Stephen Jardin of the U.S. Department of Energy's Princeton Plasma Physics Laboratory (PPPL) has discovered a mechanism that prevents the electrical current flowing through fusion plasma from repeatedly peaking and crashing. Read MoreExternal linkage


Tackling a TrillionExternal link

To study topics that take a huge amount of data, like the development of the universe or plasma physics, a team of scientists has developed a program to run trillion-particle problems from start to finish on the most powerful supercomputers in the United States. Read MoreExternal linkage

Plant Metabolic Protein Tailored for Nighttime GrowthExternal link

A group of researchers at the Carnegie Institute for Science have found a protein that is necessary for photosynthetic organisms to perform their nightly work and, surprisingly, the role of this protein was linked to the construction of the plant’s cellular membranes. Read MoreExternal linkage

UW Team Refrigerates Liquids with a Laser for the First TimeExternal link

University of Washington researchers are the first to solve a decades-old puzzle — figuring out how to make a laser refrigerate water and other liquids under real-world conditions. Read MoreExternal linkage


Assembling a FloodExternal link

Researchers from Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory and the University of California, Berkeley, have developed an assembly program so efficient they believe it could handle output from all the world’s sequencers on just part of one supercomputer. Read MoreExternal linkage

In the late 1990s, Lori Freitag (now Diachin) received the highest honor given by the U.S. government to researchers beginning their career for designing ways to visualize and interact with large, complex data sets.11.17.15Profile
