Form follows sequence
Powerful new computational tools, such as those
available at nersc, are playing a key role in deciphering
the molecular dynamics of proteins, including creating
"movies" of proteins in motion.
Circuits of a cell
Scientists investigate the biochemical "circuitry" of cells.
Electron microscopy and spectroscopy techniques are
making it possible for scientists to create 3-D images of
protein complexes that are unsuitable for x-ray
The crystal robot
Innovative robotics designed and built by Lab
researchers will grow protein crystals for
experimentation at a rate once only dreamed of.
The machinery of life
Scientists are using Berkeley Lab's state-of-the-art imaging resources to gain new insight into the structure and function of proteins, including those involved in cystic fibrosis.
Seeing the cell nucleus in 3-D
A new microscopic program called daVinci is helping
researchers better understand how breast cancer
Evaluating vehicle emissions controls
ORNL researchers are developing software tools for supercomputers that will simulate engine exhaust from various lean-burn diesel and gasoline engines as it flows through envisioned catalytic converters designed to chemically transform pollutants into harmless emissions.
