A recent article in the New York Times mentioned the work that Jonathan Sebat, chief of the Beyster Center for Molecular Genomics of Neuropsychiatric Diseases at UCSD, has […]

Algae and Biofuels, Happy Thanksgiving

I recently learned that the University of Michigan College of Engineering has made a breakthrough in converting algae into a usable form of biofuel. According to the report I read, the process involves subjecting the algae to high temperatures for exactly one minute. This results in the conversion of 65 percent of the algae into […]

Artificial Leaf and Beyster Building Hawks

I recently read an article in the New Yorker magazine about the work being done by scientists to create a new sustainable source of energy: the artificial leaf. According to the article, scientists at Cal Tech and other universities and government laboratories are making good progress towards the goal of producing a thin, coated-silicon sheet […]
