Featured Stories

Virtually tour EMSL's Radiochemistry Annex, a facility designed for the understanding of the chemical fate and transport of radionuclides in terrestrial and subsurface ecosystems.
Washington State Academy of Sciences’ membership has elected EMSL Chief Scientist Don Baer as a member of the academy for his outstanding scientific achievement and leadership. He will be inducted into the academy in September.
Findings from a team of scientists doing some of their research at EMSL showed plants emit a molecular signal that invites an attack from a pathogen. The results were published in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences and could lead to advances in biofuels and human health.
A JBEI/JGI/EMSL collaboration has identified microbial species whose enzymes actively deconstruct biomass from switchgrass, a leading potential fuel crop.
