Department of Energy Announces $13.5 Million for New Bioimaging Approaches for Bioenergy

The U.S. Department of Energy announced $13.5 million in funding for six projects to develop new approaches to microscopic imaging of plants and microbes, with the goal of advancing bioenergy research. The aim is to take advantage of new technologies such as quantum dots to provide a more detailed picture of metabolic processes taking place within living cells. Such capabilities will be important in the effort to reengineer plants and microbes for bioenergy conversion and production. Read More
