Biosciences and Biotechnology at LLNL
[Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory (LLNL)] "Working with academia, industry, and government, we leverage the laboratory's capabilities in the physical and engineering sciences to conduct biosciences and biotechnology research of national importance." This site contains information about LLNL's bioscience research which includes three main areas: genomics, disease susceptibility and prevention, and healthcare and medical device technology.
DOE Biological and Environmental Research Program
[U.S. Department of Energy] "The Life Sciences Division manages a diverse portfolio of research to develop fundamental biological information and to advance technology in support of DOE's missions in biology, medicine, and the environment." Research information on this site includes the areas of the human genome, ELSI research, structural biology, model organisms, microbial genomes, and low dose radiation research.
Human Genome Research
[U.S. Department of Energy] The U.S. Human Genome Project (HGP), composed of the DOE and NIH Human Genome Programs, is the national coordinated effort
to characterize all human genetic material by determining the complete sequence of the DNA in the human genome.
Human Genome Sequencing Department
[U.S. Department of Energy] This department is now part of the joint genome institute which involves the genome centers at Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory and Los Alamos National Laboratory. This department uses directed sequencing strategies pioneered at LBNL in order to conduct genomic sequences.
Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory
[U.S. Department of Energy] LLNL provides biotechnologies and biosciences automation along with mobile robotic systems for the use of nuclear responses, site characterization activities, and interrogation.
Microbial Genome Program
[U.S. Department of Energy] The Microbial Genome Program's goal is to completely sequence the genomes of microbes, primarily bacteria.
[Oak Ridge National Laboratory] This site provides information and images from the MicroCAT high resolution x-ray computed tomography system developed at ORNL that generates 3-D images of the internal structure of laboratory animals.
Sandia National Laboratory
[U.S. Department of Energy] This laboratory designs all non-nuclear components for the nation's nuclear weapons, perform a wide variety of energy research and development projects, and work on assignments that respond to national security threats. The laboratory's biotechnology developments include computational modeling of protein folding, heme shapes in proteins, and many others.
