Lead Institution: University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign
Principal Investigator: Amy Marshall-Colon
Sorghum bicolor is an important bioenergy crop because it has high nutrient and water use efficiency, and produces a large quantity of biomass that can be processed into ethanol for biofuels. Many genomic resources exist for sorghum, and the...
Lead Institution: University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill
Principal Investigator: Elizabeth Shank
Bacteria live everywhere, from the soil and sea to the surface of every plant and animal on earth. Most bacteria exist within diverse, multispecies communities that exert profound impacts on their hosts as well as on ecosystem-level processes. In...
Lead Institution: University of Missouri - Columbia
Principal Investigator: Gary Stacey
Recent data indicate that competition between plant plasma membrane (PM) receptor palmitoylation and autophosphorylation defines inactive and active states, respectively. Hence, for any given treatment, global monitoring of receptor palmitoylation...
Lead Institution: Pacific Northwest National Laboratory
Principal Investigator: Jon Jacobs
PNNL has developed and continues to develop multiple approaches and analytical capabilities for nanoproteomics; to process and analyze via liquid chromatography mass spectrometry (LC-MS) samples on the nano to microscale, e.g. nanoPOTS, microPOTS,...
Lead Institution: Pacific Northwest National Laboratory
Principal Investigator: Alex Beliaev
Directed evolution and targeted trait selection remain among the most powerful and successful tools available for attaining the process improvements necessary to enable commercial success in many biotechnology sectors. Our team is using "solar-...
Lead Institution: University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill
Principal Investigator: Elizabeth Shank
In nature, most microbes exist as members of complex multispecies communities that play vital roles promoting plant and soil health. Many of these microbial communities exist as biofilms: structured multispecies collections of microbial cells...
