The U. S. Department of Energy's Office of Science, Biological and Environmental Research (BER) hereby announces interest in receiving applications for genomics-based research that will lead to the improved use of plant biomass and feedstocks for the production of biofuels and renewable chemical
Applications are sought for research on candidate herbaceous and woody plants with improved resistance/tolerance to disease and disease complexes, and non-food oil seed crops for improved winter cold tolerance/survivability and agronomic traits.
Research to overcome these biological barriers to the low-cost, high-quality, scalable and sustainable production of dedicated bioenergy biomass feedstocks using the tools of genetics and genomics are encouraged.
