- 6. [VIDEO] Our first ever look at bacterial organelle shells
In a new Science publication, The Kerfeld lab show us the details of bacterial organelle shells for the first time ever, making it easier to target them for medical or renewable energy applications.
- 7. How to build an artificial nano-factory to power our futures
The Kerfeld lab has analyzed over 200 sets of cyanobacteria DNA. This knowledge is getting us closer to understanding how to build synthetic factories that will someday produce green fuels or products used to diagnose diseases.
- 8. 2017 Anton Lang Memorial Award Winners Announced
Clement Aussignargues and Joshua MacCready have won the 2017 Anton Lang Memorial Award.
