A Berkeley Lab team is developing pilot-scale ecosystems – called EcoPods – designed to bridge the gap between lab-scale experiments that are too small to capture real-world complexity and field-scale experiments that can’t be carefully controlled. Biosciences Area researchers Esther Singer, Cinta Gomez Silvan, and Vega Shah are on the Lab team, which participated in the opening session of DOE’s Energy I-Corps program earlier this month in Golden, Colorado.
