BER research complementary to the GSP
The Bioimaging Science Program within the Department of Energy's Office of Biological and Environmental Research (BER), sponsors research at national laboratories and universities that addresses grand challenges for biology. The program’s mission is to understand translation of genomic information into the mechanisms that power living cells, communities of cells, and whole organisms. The program’s goal is to develop new imaging and measurement technologies to visualize the spatial and temporal relationships of key metabolic processes governing phenotypic expression in plants and microbes. Annual program PI meetings are intended to convene investigators contributing to the program and review progress and the current state-of-the-art in bioimaging research.
