DOE JGI users to tout DNA sequencing achievements for bioenergy, climate, & bioremediation

More than 200 researchers from around the world, users of information generated by the industrial-strength DNA sequencing efforts of the U.S. Department of Energy Joint Genome Institute (DOE JGI), will convene in Walnut Creek, Calif. March 29 through April 1 for the first ever DOE JGI User Meeting.

In keynote presentations and poster sessions these researchers will reveal the manifold benefits to their respective disciplines from DOE JGI sequence information and the progress being made toward developing, among many others, new systems for harnessing plants and microbes for enhanced biofuels production.

The DOE Joint Genome Institute, supported by the DOE Office of Science, unites the expertise of five national laboratories, Lawrence Berkeley, Lawrence Livermore, Los Alamos, Oak Ridge, and Pacific Northwest, along with the Stanford Human Genome Center to advance genomics in support of the DOE mission related to clean energy generation and environmental characterization and clean-up. DOE JGI's Walnut Creek, Calif. Production Genomics Facility provides integrated high-throughput sequencing and computational analysis that enable systems-based scientific approaches to these challenges.
