Berkeley Lab


The Department of Energy Office of Science has invested strategically in the science and technological advances that make critical research possible across scales ranging from microorganisms and mineral surfaces to terrestrial ecosystems. Advances in imaging at all scales, genomics, computation, biological engineering and nanoscale science and technology now provide the suite of tools that enable us to decipher the complex world of microbes to biomes – from the smallest organisms to planet-wide systems. Leveraging DOE investments, Berkeley Lab has pioneered many of these advances in imaging, biology, computing, nanoscale science and genomics that make it uniquely positioned to develop microbe to biome solutions.
