The BER supports fundamental research to advance a predictive understanding of complex biological and environmental systems relevant to DOE energy missions. Starting with the genetic potential encoded by organisms’ genomes, BER-supported programs seek to define the principles that guide the translation of the genetic code into functional metabolism to understand, predict, manipulate and design biological processes for beneficial bioenergy and bioproduct production. BER’s Mesoscale to Molecules activity supports these efforts through basic research to enable the development of bioimaging capabilities for in situ visualization of the spatial and temporal distributions of key molecules, metabolites, enzymes and cellular structures in plant and microbial systems relevant to bioenergy research.
