Harnessing Metabolomics for Energy & Environmental Applications

Please join Berkeley Lab for a free webinar at Thursday, November 5, 9:00 AM-10:00 AM (PST)

Long-known as a DNA sequencing powerhouse, the DOE Joint Genome Institute offers many additional products and services to advance energy and environmental genomics. One prominent capability available through the Community Science Program (CSP) is metabolomic analysis, which includes mass spectrometry-based measurements of primary and secondary metabolites from plants, microorganisms, and environmental samples using targeted and untargeted approaches.

To better understand how metabolomics can help advance your own research, we invite you to attend a JGI Engagement Webinar for an overview of our metabolomic capabilities provided by Trent Northen, JGI Metabolomics Program Lead. Also hear from Jenny Mortimer, Director of Plant Systems Biology at the Joint BioEnergy Institute (JBEI), on how she uses transcriptomic and metabolomic data to understand the interactions between gene and environment specifically for biomass analysis, and how this approach has revealed unexpected fluxes in the lignin biosynthetic pathway.

The community Q&A session following the presentations is your opportunity to ask the experts about metabolomics, how it can be applied to your research questions, and how to access the capability through the CSP.
