Congratulations to Susannah Tringe, one of eight scientists and engineers who received the 2020 Ernest Orlando Lawrence Award, one of DOE’s highest honors! Tringe, a microbiologist, was recognized for “advances in sequence-based studies of microbial assemblies, revealing the roles of microbial communities in carbon cycling, in interactions with plants, and as drivers of methane production, nutrient cycling, greenhouse gas emissions, and water recycling.”
Tringe is the interim director of Berkeley Lab’s Environmental Genomics and Systems Biology Division, and JGI’s deputy for user programs. She also leads the JGI’s Microbial Systems group.
The award ceremony was held January 19, 2021. Learn more here in the Berkeley Lab story.
