Bringing Out the Best in X-ray Crystallography Data

November 4, 2013

Combining components of Rosetta and PHENIX, two successful software programs for creating 3D structural models of proteins and other biomolecules, Berkeley Lab researchers have created a new method for refining those models and making the best of available experimental data.


3D IR Images Now in Full Color

August 5, 2013

Berkeley Lab and University of Wisconsin researchers have created the first technique to offer full color IR tomography, a non-destructive 3D imaging process that provides molecular-level chemical information of unprecedented detail on biological and other specimens with no need to stain or alter the specimen.


Tiny Bubbles Hold Big Promise for NMR/MRI

July 15, 2013

Tiny bubbles carrying hyperpolarized xenon gas hold big promise for greatly increasing the sensitivity of NMR/MRI technologies.


Of Aging Bones and Sunshine

July 10, 2013

Berkeley Lab researcher have shown that deficiencies in vitamin D – the sunshine vitamin – accelerates the aging of bone, reducing the quality and making it more susceptible to fracturing.


Cancerous Traffic Jams: Biomechanical Factor in Malignancies Identified

July 1, 2013

Berkeley Lab researchers have demonstrated that the malignant activity of a cellular protein system strongly linked to breast cancer can arise from what essentially are protein traffic jams.


Copper on the Brain

May 24, 2013

Berkeley Lab researchers have developed unique fluorescent probes for molecular imaging of copper in the brain, and are using these probes to uncover new information critical to a healthy mind.


Comparing Proteins at a Glance

April 29, 2013

A revolutionary X-ray analytical technique enables researchers at a glance to identify structural similarities and differences between multiple proteins under a variety of conditions and has already been used to gain valuable new insight into a prime protein target for cancer chemotherapy.


Do We Owe Our Sense of Smell to Epigenetics?

March 4, 2013

Olfactory sensory neurons – nerve cells in the nose – directly sense molecules that convey scent, then send the signals to the brain. Biologists have long wondered how it’s possible for each nerve cell to be equipped with only one kind of olfactory receptor (OR). There are over a thousand different kinds of OR genes [...]


Reading the Human Genome

February 27, 2013

Berkeley Lab researchers have achieved a major advance in understanding how genetic information is transcribed from DNA to RNA by providing the first step-by-step look at the biomolecular machinery that reads the human genome.


A Dual Look at Photosystem II Using the World’s Most Powerful X-Ray Laser

February 14, 2013

Artificial photosynthesis and other new technologies based on
metalloenzyme catalysis will benefit from a technique for simultaneously collecting both diffraction and spectroscopy data demonstrated by Berkeley Lab and SLAC researchers at the world’s most powerful X-ray laser.
