Plants May Be Key
To Energy Independence
By Ian Hoffman

After years of decoding the DNA of humans and lab animals, scientists are delving back into plants and microorganisms where DNA sequencing started to plagiarize nature's secrets for making energy and getting rid of pollutants. Leading experts on termites, energy crops and bacteria that thrive on toxic metals gathered last week in Walnut Creek, home to the Department of Energy's Joint Genome Institute, to talk about their detective work. Full story.

Officials Discuss Disaster Preparedness Plan
By Riya Bhattacharjee

Top state, county and city emergency services officials from the State of California and Alameda County recently met with senior officials from UC Berkeley, Berkeley Lab, Alta Bates Summit Medical Center, Vista College, the Berkeley Unified School District (BUSD) and Bayer Health Care to discuss emergency preparedness coordination and communication plans in the event of a major disaster in Berkeley. Mayor Tom Bates described the session as a "unique opportunity to get an understanding of how the city would operate during a disaster — especially the first four to five days." Full story.

Kilimanjaro in Japan?
Wrong Location Listed

For those who aren't aware, Mount Kilimanjaro has moved from Tanzania to Japan, or so Friday's edition of Today at Berkeley Lab might have you believe. Many savvy readers noticed the mistake in an article on Lina Galtieri and alerted TABL editors. Rest assured, the famous peak is still located in Tanzania.

New Bus Posters Honor
Lab's History, Nobelists

Berkeley Lab's 75th anniversary is now a prominent feature of the Lab's shuttle buses. A new set of posters has been added to the sides of the buses, each one paying tribute to one of the 10 Nobel Laureates who have called Berkeley Lab their home. The posters also include the anniversary logo and the URL for the web site. The effort is another part of the Lab's yearlong celebration of its heritage and its accomplishments. Go here for anniversary information.
