Welcome to the 2012 Department of Energy (DOE) Genomic Science Program Awardee Meeting. This workshop brings together researchers supported by the program, representatives from DOE, and colleagues from other federal agencies. The Genomic Science program—within the Biological Systems Science Division of the Office of Biological and Environmental Research (BER)—supports fundamental research to achieve a predictive, systems-level understanding of plants, microbes, and biological communities through the integration of fundamental research and technology development. This program provides the foundation for biological solutions to DOE mission challenges in energy, environment, and climate. The objectives of the program are to:

  • Determine the genomic properties, molecular and regulatory mechanisms, and resulting functional potential of microbes, plants, and biological communities central to DOE missions.
  • Develop the experimental capabilities and enabling technologies needed to achieve a genome-based, dynamic systems-level understanding of organism and community functions.
  • Develop the knowledgebase, computational infrastructure, and modeling capabilities to advance the understanding, prediction, and manipulation of complex biological systems.

Abstract Organization

Within the Awardee Workshop book, Genomic Science program abstracts and posters are organized according to the following research areas important to achieving the ultimate scientific goal and objectives.
