Featured Stories

EMSL and PNNL scientists isolated two bacterial consortia from a microbial mat in a lake. The team used EMSL and DOE JGI capabilities to characterize each consortia’s membership and interactions. The findings are a step toward using these organisms in global carbon and energy cycling applications.
To better understand site-specific processes, properties, and conditions controlling uranium bioremediation, scientists developed faster, more detailed simulations, maximizing the use of broader Rifle Site field experiment data.
A new study combines modeling and laboratory experiments to assess uranium release under flow conditions over a time period long enough to evaluate transport behavior of uranium in sediment samples collected from the Hanford Site.
A special issue of Proteomics highlighted EMSL’s top down proteomics expertise. The journal featured Ljiljana Paša-Tolic, EMSL’s lead scientist for mass spectroscopy, who co-edited the special issue, co-authored the publication’s editorial and contributed to three of the research articles. Other EMSL and PNNL researchers also contributed to the special issue.
