Lead Institution: Michigan State University
Principal Investigator: Lisa Tiemann
To meet the goals of highly productive and sustainable bioenergy cropping systems, we need to explore all options for improving the efficiency of bioenergy crops, including optimizing the positive relationships between bioenergy crops and indigenous...
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: Princeton University
Principal Investigator: Tullis Onstott
The specific aim of this Large-Scale EMSL proposal is to image the metabolic interactions of deep subsurface anaerobic CH4-cycling microbial consortia: 1) at high pressure and temperature; 2) at high temperature and salinity, and 3) during in situ...
Lead Institution: Pacific Northwest National Laboratory
Principal Investigator: James Stegen
Terrestrial-aquatic interfaces are widely recognized as active zones of organic matter metabolism, and hyporheic zones in particular are critical in determining the fate of organic matter globally. In particular, subsurface zones of groundwater-...
Lead Institution: Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute
Principal Investigator: Jennifer Hurley
Biofuel production using cellulases extracted from fungi has the potential to be a major resource to replace fossil fuels and regulating the synthesis of these and other enzymes is crucial for the economics of biofuel production from lignocellulose...
