Divisions & User Facility
Biological Systems & Engineering (BSE)
BSE investigators lead efforts that combine the power of biology with the tools of engineering to advance sustainable energy, develop biomanufacturing solutions, and improve human health.
Environmental Genomics & Systems Biology (EGSB)
Scientists in EGSB aim to link genome biology to ecosystem dynamics. They develop systems-level models using genomics, integrated molecular observation, controlled manipulation of model organisms, and data science.
Molecular Biophysics & Integrated Bioimaging (MBIB)
MBIB researchers generate a predictive and mechanistic understanding of biological processes. Their goal is to harness basic cellular functions to solve national challenges in energy, environment, health, and biomanufacturing.
DOE Joint Genome Institute (JGI)
The JGI is a DOE National User Facility that provides genomic science services to researchers around the globe. Through their user support and discovery science, JGI researchers further DOE missions related to clean energy and environment.
