Grounding greenhouse gases
Moving carbon out of the atmosphere and storing it in the ground offers a promising approach to reducing greenhouse gases, principally carbon dioxide, in the atmosphere. Researchers at Pacific Northwest National Laboratory are exploring how different soil management practices affect the fungal activity in soils and how that relates to the soils' ability to store carbon.

'SNP'ing' away at human health issues
In the summer of 2000, scientists around the world cheered as the effort to unravel the mystery of the human genome reached a milestone—a completed draft of the human genome sequence. The sequence is a set of instructions that determines individual characteristics ranging from the cosmetic, such as hair and eye color, to the medically important, such as susceptibility to disease and response to treatments.
