• Moore Foundation Funds Berkeley Lab for Next-Generation Accelerators

    3 years ago - By News Center

    Written by Aditi Risbud
    Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory (Berkeley Lab) researchers will receive $2.4 million from the Gordon and Betty Moore Foundation to develop compact free electron lasers that will serve as powerful, affordable x-ray sources for scientific discovery. This new technology could lead to portable and high-contrast X-ray imaging to observe chemical reactions, visualize the flow of electrons, or watch biological processes unfold.

  • Applications of microfluidics in microalgae biotechnology: A review

    Applications of microfluidics in microalgae biotechnology: A review

    3 years ago - By Wiley

    Abstract
    Microalgae have been one of the important sources for biofuel production owing to their competitive advantages such as no need to tap into the global food supply chain, higher energy density, and absorbing carbon dioxide to mitigate global warming. One of the key factors to ensure successful biofuel production is that it requires not only bioprospecting of the microalgae with high lipid content, high growth rate and tolerance to environmental parameters but also on-site monitoring of the cultivation process and optimization of the culturing conditions. However, as the...

    3 years ago - By Xconomy

    Editas Medicine is pushing ahead with plans to go public. An IPO for the Cambridge, MA-based company would make it the first among the handful of biotechs that are betting on the groundbreaking CRISPR-Cas9 gene editing system to develop human therapeutics.

The midpoint of that range would add up to a $100 million IPO and leave the company, for the moment, with a market value just north of $600 million. If all goes well, bankers could sell extra shares and bump the deal total...
