Presentation on Strategic Plan by Sharlene Weatherwax, U.S. Department of Energy

Genomics:GTL Goal and Objectives

Ultimate Scientific Goal
Achieve a predictive, systems-level understanding of plants, microbes, and biological communities, via integration
of fundamental science and technology development, to enable biological solutions to DOE mission challenges,
including energy, environment, and climate.

Objective 1: Determine the genomic properties, molecular and regulatory mechanisms, and resulting functional potential of microbes, plants, and biological communities central to DOE missions.

Objective 2: Develop the experimental capabilities and enabling technologies needed to achieve a genome-based, dynamic systems-level understanding of organism and community functions.

Objective 3: Develop the knowledgebase, computational infrastructure, and modeling capabilities to advance the understanding, prediction, and manipulation of complex biological systems.

Abstract Organization

Abstracts associated with the Metabolic Engineering Working Group (MEWG) are identified as such and are intermixed with GTL abstracts in relevant categories. The Genomics:GTL and MEWG program abstracts and posters are organized according to the following research areas important to achieving the ultimate GTL scientific goal and objectives.
