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.
Genomics:GTL program abstracts and posters are organized according to the following research areas important to achieving the ultimate GTL scientific goal and objectives.
