+ - Sabotage At Energy Department Facility->

Submitted by wjousts
wjousts (1529427) writes "Chemical and Engineering News is reporting that more than 3,500 protein crystal samples were destroyed in a deliberate act of vandalism at the SLAC National Accelerator Laboratory in Menlo Park, CA. The laboratory performs x-ray crystallography to elucidate protein structures and although at least some data had be collected on most of the samples, about 120 samples had were new and had not be analyzed yet. It may take weeks to months to recreate the lost samples.

Both the Department of Energy's Office of Inspector General and the Federal Bureau of Investigation are investigating."
