The UCLA-DOE Institute is a team of research laboratories, a campus wide Organized Research Unit, working on fundamental research and technology developments in broad DOE mission areas ranging from microbes, to biofuels and green chemistry, to the design of new biomaterials. Research areas being pursued within the Institute include: advanced biofuels; carbon capture; the genomics, proteomics and properties of photosynthetic and other energy-related microbes; the structure and function of energy producing organelles; biomass degradation, and plant metabolism. Technology development in the Institute includes: tools; for algal and soil genomics, new methods of gene and protein identification and understanding of RNA regulation, tools for synthetic biology, and methods for microcrystallography and protein design.
