New Mathematics Advances the Frontier of Macromolecular Imaging

August 10, 2015

Berkeley Lab researchers have introduced new mathematical theory and an algorithm, which they call "Multi-tiered iterative phasing (M-TIP)," to solve the reconstruction problem from fluctuation X-ray scattering data. This approach is an important step in unlocking the door to new advances in biophysics and has the promise of ushering in new tools to help solve some of the most challenging problems in the life sciences.

Project Jupyter gets $6M to expand collaborative data science software

July 7, 2015

Three foundations pledged $6M over the next three years to Project Jupyter, an open-source software project that supports scientific computing and data science across a wide range of programming languages via a large, public, open and inclusive community. Fernando Perez will lead the effort at UC Berkeley and Berkeley Lab. Read More »

The Rise and Fall of Core-Collapse Supernovae

July 2, 2015

Few events in the cosmos are as powerful as the explosion of a massive star in a supernova. For several weeks, the brightness of that single event can rival that of an entire galaxy. As a result, supernovae of various types are often used as "standard candles" in determining the size and expansion rate of a universe powered by dark energy. Despite decades of research, however, understanding the explosion mechanisms of supernovae remains among the great challenges of… Read More »
