Agency: Department of Energy
Program: Genomic Science: Biosystems Design to Enable Next-Generation Biofuels
Description: This program is interested in receiving applications for research that supports the Genomics Science Program and addresses DOE?s missions in energy and the environment in the following research areas: a) Microbial systems design for biofuels, from computer modeling to experimental validation: To develop modeling algorithms and innovative biosystems design technologies to define, build, and apply functional biological modules for the generation of novel biological systems that advance toward the production of biofuels; and b) Plant systems design for bioenergy: To develop novel technologies to re-design bioenergy crops that can grow in marginal environments while producing high yield of biomass that can be easily converted to biofuels. Applications should also address potential societal implications of engineered organisms.
Award Amount: Awards from $1million - $5million
