The DOE Joint Genome Institute expands capabilities via new partnerships
Date:5/15/2013

ced by the DOE JGI.

  • "Development of a pipeline for high-throughput recovery of near-complete and complete microbial genomes from complex metagenomic datasets," proposed by Jill Banfield of the University of California, Berkeley and Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory, Chongle Pan of Oak Ridge National Laboratory, and Brian Thomas of the University of California, Berkeley. This technology could result in better methods for isolating and characterizing entire microbial genomes from the fragmentary sequences typical of environmental samples.

  • "Development and Implementation of High Throughput Methods for Fungal Culturing and Nucleic Acid Isolation," proposed by Jon Magnuson of Pacific Northwest National Laboratory. Similar to the AGI proposal above, this technology could make the isolation of DNA from fungi in amounts and quality that can be more effectively sequenced by DOE JGI considerably easier.

    The DOE JGI expects to commit approximately $3.5 million over the next two years to the new ETOP initiatives.

    "The DOE JGI strives to integrate these expanded activities in innovative and effective ways," said Bristow. "This is critical if the biological sciences are to realize the full benefits and promise of genome sequencing."
