Oil spill mars UC Berkeley's BP-funded research (AP)

BP's catastrophic oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico is fueling opposition to the University of California, Berkeley's research partnership with the oil giant, with activists staging protests on the famously liberal campus. The British company gave UC Berkeley a $500 million grant in 2007 to create the Energy Biosciences Institute, which works to develop new sources of plant-based fuel. It's believed to be the largest-ever corporate sponsorship of university research, but still outraged students and professors who worried the global oil company would exert too much influence over academic research and damage the university's reputation.
