COVID-19 Research at the Lab.

One of nature’s most important chemical reactions is now being captured in a breakthrough “molecular movie.”
Scientists at Berkeley Lab’s Molecular Foundry have joined forces with a research team at Stanford to aim a gene-targeting, antiviral agent called PAC-MAN against COVID-19.
Berkeley Lab launches three new projects to advance sustainable agricultural practices, leveraging the Lab’s strengths in artificial intelligence, sensors, and ecological biology. 
The Dark Energy Spectroscopic Instrument, which will map millions of galaxies in 3D, reaches final milestone toward its startup.
Despite the pandemic, the Daya Bay reactor neutrino experiment in Shenzen, China, has continued to pump data to remote supercomputers for analyses. Berkeley Lab leads U.S. participation in the international physics collaboration.
Laser and biology experts at Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory (Berkeley Lab) are working together to develop a platform and experiments to study the structure and components of viruses like the one causing COVID-19, and to learn how viruses interact with their surrounding environment. 
The Sanford Underground Research Facility, which is home to the LUX-ZEPLIN dark matter search project, earlier this month began a transition back toward increased operations.
A technology spun from carbon nanotube sensors discovered 20 years ago by Berkeley Lab scientists could one day help health care providers test patients for COVID-19, the disease caused by the coronavirus SARS-CoV-2.
Despite a temporary shutdown of the Dark Energy Spectroscopic Instrument in Arizona – which was in its final stages of testing in preparation to begin mapping millions of galaxies in 3D when the pandemic struck – a variety of project tasks are still moving forward.
