DOE's $375M for Bioenergy Centers Fuels Genomics and Systems Bio Science

he US Department of Energy plans to fund its three Bioenergy Research Centers, which pursue a range of genomic and systems biology research projects for biofuel development, with $375 million over the next five years, DOE said on Thursday.
The funding will provide $25 million annually to each of the three BRCs, including Oak Ridge National Laboratory's BioEnergy Research Center (BESC); the Great Lakes Bioenergy Research Center (GLBRC), which is led by the University of Wisconsin-Madison in partnership with Michigan State University; and the Joint BioEnergy Institute (JBEI), led by Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory.
Over the next five years, through 2018, the centers will focus on advancing new methods and discoveries they have developed over the past five years, developing new research lines, and speeding the translation of innovative science into technologies that can be taken to market.
