JGI Unveils 2009 Genomic and Metagenomic Sequencing Plans | GenomeWeb
NEW YORK (GenomeWeb News) – The DOE’s Joint Genome Institute today named 44 genomic sequencing projects that its Community Sequencing Program will support in 2009 to find information it can use in new biomass and bioenergy programs.
Researchers will explore a wide variety of sources — including the guts of an Amazonian stinkbird, a wood-boring marine bivalve, the surfaces of ponds, and the forests of the southern US — for genomic and metagenomic information they can use to develop renewable and clean energy strategies.
