Featured Stories

Scientists at PNNL and Oregon Health & Science University working at EMSL designed a new approach to accurately establish the spatial location of molecules during mass spectrometry imaging of biological samples. The new technique offers information for cost-effective production of biofuels and pharmaceuticals.
ASTM International has selected EMSL’s Don Baer to receive the 2014 Award of Merit, the organization's highest recognition. He earned the award the for his exceptional service to ASTM International Committee E42 on Surface Analysis, innovations in the development of standards for surface analysis and development of new information resources for surface analysis.
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.
A team of PNNL scientists doing some of their research at EMSL developed a unified theory and unified multiscale model that simulates water flow at all scales. The new approach is important for understanding water cycling and its effect on agriculture, water conservation and climate changes.
