With new tool, biologists don’t have to be programmers to answer big computational questions

If biologists wanted to determine the likely way a particular gene variant might increase a plant’s yield for producing biofuels, they used to have to track down several databases and cross-reference them using complex computer code. 1,274 more words

Girl Scouts of Suffolk County Staff Members Learn STEM Activities at Brookhaven Lab

Sometimes all it takes for a girl to get interested in science is experiencing it hands-on — like documenting the health of a pond ecosystem by tracking animals, or understanding the physics of static electricity by feeling her hair stand up on end. 862 more words

RHIC Collides Helium-3 and Gold in a Flawless 'Run of Firsts'

The familiar lighter-than-air gas filling birthday balloons has a rare isotope: a nucleus consisting of two protons and a single neutron called helium-3. But instead of using this gas for fanciful decorations, scientists at the U.S. 1,638 more words
