JGI Science at the Lesher panel on May 9, 2011
Date:5/6/2011

Microbes make the world go 'round they comprise most of the Earth's total biodiversity and play key roles in maintaining the global processes that keep the planet, and life in and on it, going. One of the global processes microbes play a key role in is the carbon cycle, which is currently unbalanced. Humans release more carbon into the atmosphere than can be naturally removed.

"The Deal with Carbon: How Earth's Mighty Microbes Respond," is a free panel discussion set to take place at the Lesher Center in downtown Walnut Creek on Monday, May 9, 2011 from 7:00pm to 8:30pm. More details are available at http://1.usa.gov/ef6zYA

The talk will be moderated by KTVU Channel 2 Health and Science Editor John Fowler and will feature scientists from Walnut Creek's DOE Joint Genome Institute and the Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory. Among the research areas they cover are the microbes involved in cleaning up last year's oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico, understanding the role of microbes in the thawing Arctic permafrost and the long-term goal to fill in the tree of life.

Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory (Berkeley Lab) launched the Carbon Cycle 2.0 initiative to provide the science needed to restore this balance by integrating the Lab's diverse research activities and delivering creative solutions toward a carbon-neutral energy future. Microbes play a major role in the management of global carbon. An affiliate of LBNL, the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) Joint Genome Institute (JGI) has researchers working on some of these solutions.

Seating is limited so call the Lesher Center box office at 925-943-7469 prior to May 9 to reserve free tickets. The Lesher Center box office is open Tuesday to Thursday and Sunday from 12nn to 6pm and on Friday and Saturday from 12nn to 7:30pm.
