Catastrophic fires in Northern California burned more than 110,000 acres in Sonoma and Napa counties last month – including 8% of the Russian River watershed. Now with the rainy season underway Berkeley Lab’s research – which seeks to understand how the hydrology and microbiology of the surface and groundwater system respond to extreme events – has become even more critical.

A new study using X-rays has revealed a chain mail-like woven microstructure that gives parrotfish teeth their remarkable ability to chomp on coral all day long – the structure could serve as a blueprint for designing ultra-durable synthetic materials.

In search of new plant enzymes? Try looking in compost. Researchers at our Joint BioEnergy Institute (JBEI) have demonstrated the importance of microbial communities as a source of stable enzymes that could be used to convert plants to #biofuels.

Our researchers and UC Berkeley scientists teamed up to help decipher one of the most bizarre spectacles ever seen in the night sky: A supernova that refused to stop shining, remaining bright far longer than an ordinary stellar explosion. What caused the event is puzzling.
