Antarctic icebergs -- Hotspots of ocean life

...ego who managed the data. “And we need to reliably harvest this information at sea, thousands of miles from our shore-based labs, and to preserve it as a unique snapshot of these iceberg ecosystems at this point in history.” Using SDSC-developed technologies, Helly collected the data using the SIOExplore...

Super-fermenting fungus genome sequenced

...by providing new outlets for agricultural and wood harvest residues.? Ligonocellulosic biomass, a complex of cellulose, hemicellulose, and lignin, is derived from such plant-based “feedstocks?as agricultural waste, paper and pulp, wood chips, grasses, or trees such as poplar, recently sequenced by DOE JG...

Tracking sperm whales and jumbo squid

End of deforestation in view? Experts advance new way to size up global forest resources

...e that it's possible to sustain a large commercial harvest and expand "growing stock" at the same time. Says economist Dr. Sedjo: "The USA gained growing stock during 1990 to 2005 while harvesting much round wood and some fuel. China did likewise. On the other hand, Indonesia and Brazil lost much growin...

Engineer ramps up protein production, develops versatile viral spheres

For one of his more recent contributions to developing cell-free techniques, Swartz will receive the Gaden Award at the ACS meeting. The award is named for ...

Bacteria that use radiated water as food

...burg disaster demonstrated. Firmicutes are able to harvest energy from the reaction of hydrogen and sulfate, allowing other microbes in the fracture community to use the chemical waste from the Firmicutes as food. In a way, Firmicutes serve the same function as photosynthetic organisms, such as plankton an...
