With over one million species, fungi—which include mushrooms—represent one of the largest under-explored branches of the Tree of Life. Together with its community of more than 1,000 scientific collaborators, JGI is helping to unlock the secrets encoded in the genomes of fungi to advance a better understanding of the global carbon cycle and to develop new biotechnology products, next-generation biofuels, and medicines.
In the video above, Chief Operating Officer Glenn Kubiak explains the Lab’s recent initiative focusing on motorists, pedestrians, and cyclists sharing the road. Also, be sure to stop by the cafeteria for today’s Emergency Preparedness/Road Safety Fair. More>
Part of the Behind the Scenes series at Berkeley Lab, this video highlights the lab’s mechanical fabrication facility and its exceptional ability to produce unique tools essential to the lab’s scientific mission. Through a combination of skilled craftsmanship and precision equipment, machinists and engineers work with scientists to create exactly what’s needed — whether it’s measured in microns or meters.
Satellite observations suggest that the shrinking West Antarctic ice sheet is contributing to global sea level rise. But until recently, scientists could not accurately model the physical processes driving retreat of the ice sheet. Now, a new ice sheet model — called Berkeley-ISICLES (BISICLES) — is shedding light on these details, with the help of Lab computing scientists. This video shows one possible scenario for Antarctica’s rapidly changing Amundsen Sea Embayment at two different model resolutions over a period of 218 years (from 1982 to 2200). More>
“Twenty-four hours a day, seven days a week, servers are ready to respond to the explosion of digital information that we generate every time we use the internet. These data centres can use more electricity than a small town, and up to a whopping 90% of it is wasted. High-tech giants are now looking to put their machines on a miracle energy diet. France 24 went to California to find out more. ” So begins a news video from France 24 that includes excerpts of interviews with Brent Draney and John Shalf of NERSC — Draney discussing running an energy-efficient data center, and Shalf discussing his research into energy-efficient computer chips.
Korean rapper Park Jae-sang (aka Psy) knows how to get a message across. At last count his “Gangnam Style” video amassed a record 1.3 billion hits on YouTube. This was not lost on EETD eco-rapper John “Sustainable John” Romankiewicz, who spied another opportunity to promote green living. During his last trip to Beijing, as part of the Lab’s China Energy Group, they choreographed and shot “Di Tan Style,” which translates to “Low Carbon Style.” Like the original from Psy, this video sort of sings for itself.
