The Department of Energy intends to award $5M in funds to help universities and nonprofit research organizations develop computational tools and software applications that will work to study genomics and biology research data.

The research data will cover various areas in line with DOE energy and environmental missions such as microbes and plants in a move to develop a scientific framework for biofuel production, the department said Thursday.

DOE plans to incorporate the software tools into an open-source system designed to assist the biology research community

“New computational tools are clearly needed to harness this resource and transform this wealth of information into knowledge and insight,” said Sharlene Weatherwax, associate director of science for biological and environmental research at DOE.
