FOA: Systems Biology Research To Advance Sustainable Bioenergy Crop Development


The DOE SC program in Biological and Environmental Research (BER) hereby announces its interest in receiving applications for research that supports the Genomic Science program. In this FOA, applications are requested for:

  1. Systems-level research to improve understanding of the molecular mechanisms underlying bioenergy feedstock productivity under changing and at times suboptimal environmental conditions;
  2. Systems biology-enabled investigations into the role(s) of microbes and microbial communities (including rhizosphere consortia, e.g. bacteria, fungi, diazotrophs, endophytes, viruses) in supporting plant productivity and vigor.
