PageRank  out of 10


Using genomic data and high-throughput technologies, we are studying proteins encoded by genomes to explore the diverse natural capabilities in microbes. In doing so, we will help solve larger DOE challenges in energy production, environmental cleanup, and global climate change.

Berkeley Lab is playing a large role in achieving the four primary goals of the Genomics:GTL program:

  1. to identify the protein machines that carry out critical life functions;
  2. to characterize the gene regulatory networks that control these machines;
  3. to explore the functional repertoire of complex microbial communities in their natural environments to provide a foundation for understanding and using their remarkably diverse capabilities to address DOE missions; and
  4. to develop the computational capabilities to integrate and understand these data and begin to model complex biological systems.
