Featured Experts

Ming C. Hammond

biochemist

Ming's research group employs organic synthesis, biochemistry, genetics, and bioinformatics to study small molecule-RNA and protein-RNA interactions that are involved in gene regulation in bacteria and plants.

Sylvain Costes

biophysicist

Sylvain Costes manages the computer modeling effort for the NASA Specialized Center of Research at LBNL, which studies the risks associated with space radiation on human breast tissue.  He is also part of the DOE Scientific Focus Area dedicated to understanding the effects on humans from low doses of ionizing radiation. As such, he supervises a bioinformatics lab dedicated to analysis of multi-dimensional microscope images, agent-based modeling and genomic analysis.

Manfred Auer

biological imaging expert

Manfred Auer's primary interest lie in multiscale, multimodal imaging of macromolecular machines in their respective cellular context, as well as larger scale, cellular organization in tissues and microbial communities (biofilms). Additional areas of active scientific discovery include the molecular mechanism of hearing, breast cancer pathogenesis and progression mechanisms, organization of bacterial biofilms involved in bioremediation and lignocellulose degradation, as well as organization and degradation of plant cell walls.
