Researchers from PNNL have helped colleagues at OHSU identify lipid molecules required for Zika infection in human cells. The specific lipids involved could also be a clue to why the virus primarily infects brain tissue.
As author of her first publication, PNNL bioinformaticist Isabelle O’Bryon developed the first forensic proteomics method to more quickly detect ricin, a toxin often crudely made in home laboratories that can kill in trace amounts.
To help spur economic development and assist in the battle against COVID-19, PNNL is making available its entire portfolio of patented technologies on a research trial basis—at no cost—through the end of 2020.
A long-standing collaboration between PNNL and Oregon State University to study harmful chemicals at federally designated hazardous waste sites primarily across the Pacific Northwest has been awarded a five-year, $12.7 million grant.
The recent coronavirus pandemic shows just how quickly a deadly pathogen can sweep across the globe, killing tens of thousands in the U.S. and disrupting daily life for millions more in the span of a few months.
A PNNL scientist is studying the structures of the proteins on the surface of the novel coronavirus, using NMR spectroscopy to reveal information about the molecular toolkit that holds the keys to a vaccine or treatment.
Combining its strength in biological sciences and data analytics, researchers at the Department of Energy's PNNL are working to enable a quick response to a biological incident — whether intentional, accidental or natural.
PNNL researchers and professional staff led discussions ranging from biothreats and climate change to science careers at the 2020 annual meeting of the American Association for the Advancement of Science, held this year in Seattle.
PNNL and the 13 other national laboratories of the Grid Modernization Laboratory Consortium (GMLC) will be sharing their R&D work and technologies for grid modernization at DistribuTECH International in San Antonio Jan. 28-30.
A new book by PNNL biochemist Erick Merkley details forensic proteomics, a technique that directly analyzes proteins in unknown samples, in pursuit of making proteomics a widespread forensic method when DNA is missing or ambiguous.
