The ARRA funding will give JGI $13 million for technologies for its biofuels programs.

JGI expects to generate about a third of a terabase of sequence data for CSP 2010 projects, about half on 454's sequencing platform, the other half using Illumina's technology.

JGI will support genomic sequencing studies of organisms used in its biofuel and other programs.

The microbial genomes system has been updated with new metagenomic materials, samples, and functions.

Researchers sequenced the genomes of two marine picophytoplankton isolates collected in the North Atlantic and South Pacific — work expected to lay the groundwork for a more complete understanding of plant evolution.



Nature News reports that recent proposed changes to the US National Science Foundation have raised concerns about a shift away from the agency's focus on basic research.

Noel Rose, the "father of autoimmunity," has died at 92, the Washington Post reports.

According to CNN, Legionella was discovered in buildings leased by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention as they reopened following coronavirus pandemic-related closures.
