Genomics:GTL Contractor—Grantee Workshop IV and Metabolic Engineering Working Group Inter-Agency Conference on Metabolic Engineering 2006
North Bethesda, Maryland
February 12–15, 2006
This is the first Genomics:GTL workshop for principal investigators since the release of Genomics:GTL Roadmap: Systems Biology for Energy and Environment in October 2005. Abstracts and posters for this workshop are organized around the GTL goal and milestones shown below and in the roadmap on pp. 42–55. Many of the research projects are essentially pilots or proof-of-principle studies for systems biology, technology and methods development, computing, and facilities.
Most computing abstracts, instead of comprising a separate category, are associated with appropriate experimental topics. Overarching computing infrastructure and education abstracts are under Milestone 3, GTL Computational Biology Environment.
Abstracts of the Metabolic Engineering Working Group (MEWG), an interagency approach to understanding and using metabolic processes, are identified as such and intermixed with GTL abstracts in relevant program categories.
Genomics:GTL Overarching Scientific Goal
Achieve a predictive, systems-level understanding of biological systems to help enable biobased solutions to DOE mission challenges.
