A study led by CNR ecologists has found significant flaws in the research used to challenge the U.S. Forest Service plan to restore Sierra Nevada forests to less dense, and less fire-prone, environments.
In the first of our series of interviews with students in the College of Natural Resources, Brooke Maushund tells us about her once-in-a-lifetime experiences at the COP22 Conference in Morocco, the Cal ski team, and why you shouldn't always follow the rules.
A new ERG study maps out a viable strategy for developing wind and solar power in Africa while simultaneously reducing the continent’s reliance on fossil fuels and lowering power plant construction costs.
UC Berkeley’s Energy Biosciences Institute has entered into a five-year research agreement with Shell International Exploration and Production to fund research that meets the growing demand for energy in ways that are economically, environmentally and socially responsible.
The Innovative Genomics Institute (IGI) will expand efforts to explore the potential of gene editing in the areas of agriculture and microbiology. PMB's Brian Staskawicz will direct the agricultural arm and ESPM's Jill Banfield will lead the microbiology group.
A controversial paper published two years ago that concluded there was no detectable slowdown in ocean warming over the previous 15 years — widely known as the “global warming hiatus” — has now been confirmed using independent data in research led by CNR researchers.
UC Berkeley geneticist Michael Freeling has been awarded the McClintock Prize for Plant Genetics and Genome Studies for his fundamental contributions to the understanding of gene and genome biology in plants.
PMB Professor Steven Brenner is co-author on a new study that has identified the rare genetic mutation responsible for a unique case of severe combined immunodeficiency (SCID), a deadly immune system disorder also known as “boy in the bubble” disease.
