A collaborative team of scientists from PNNL and the Great Lakes Bioenergy Research Center studied nutrient turnover in the gardens of leaf-cutter ants using #metabolomic and #metaproteomic techniques at the +Environmental Molecular Sciences Laboratory (EMSL) at PNNL. The team’s findings could improve the process to convert #biomass to #biofuels and other advanced bioproducts. Read more at http://1.usa.gov/1zpYicN.

Biofuel consumption cannot be a priority, our current consumption level skews better judgement of resource allocation for development of future technologies.

The lithium-ion batteries that power our laptops and electric vehicles could store more energy and run longer on a single charge with the help of a sponge-like silicon material. PNNL researchers developed the material – which has 10 times the energy storage capacity of graphite – to replace the graphite traditional used in one of the battery's electrodes.

Scientists trained their sights on soot to understand its undesirable effects on the #Arctic environment. Using global climate model simulations, they evaluated soot's effects in Northern China and the Arctic against measurements over the region. PNNL scientists and a University of Michigan collaborator found key model parameters that correctly spot soot buildup and melt-away in a complex seasonal and latitudinal dependence swing. Their study will help the climate modeling community better understand soot's great influence on regional and global #ClimateChange. Read more at http://bit.ly/arcticsoot.

July 4th is known for what? Family barbecues, baseball, parades and … fireworks. All that sound and color lighting the sky in dazzling patterns represent some interesting chemistry. Propulsion, explosion, luminescence and incandescence … pyrotechnic chemistry is a complex science. Learn more from the +American Chemical Society at http://bit.ly/pyrochemistry.

Microbes often communicate with each other using small molecules. Researchers at the University of California, San Diego and the +Environmental Molecular Sciences Laboratory (EMSL)  at PNNL combined #genomics and #proteomics with an automated computational tool to help translate the chemical language of #microbes into biological function.
