About the EGSB Division:
The Environmental Genomics & Systems Biology Division mission is to discover and understand the mechanisms that map genotypes to phenotypes of organisms in microbial communities and eukaryotic biosystems, and their interactions in complex environments. The Division’s vision is to find sustainable solutions to energy and environmental challenges developed through mechanistic understanding of ecosystem dynamics. Their approach is to develop systems-level models using integrated molecular observation and controlled manipulation of model organisms to design and test interventions that promote beneficial outcomes. Research is funded primarily by the Biological and Environmental Research in the Office of Science at Department of Energy (DOE) and National Institutes of Health, as well as through collaborative projects with industry.
