Featured Stories

Virtually tour EMSL's Radiochemistry Annex, a facility designed for the understanding of the chemical fate and transport of radionuclides in terrestrial and subsurface ecosystems.
A JBEI/JGI/EMSL collaboration has identified microbial species whose enzymes actively deconstruct biomass from switchgrass, a leading potential fuel crop.
EMSL’s high-performance computing team developed a process to manage the setup of the new Cascade supercomputer, that process was featured in the cover story of the April 2014 LINUX Journal.
Reduction-oxidation, or "redox," regulation is essential for many biological processes. Using a commercially available resin, PNNL researchers working at EMSL developed an innovative, efficient method for enriching and quantitatively analyzing several post-translational modifications of cysteine residues.
