BERAC Report Endorses New Program
Bringing the Genome to Life: Energy-Related Biology in the Post-Genomic World, issued in June, recommends a new research program for the DOE Office of Biological and Environmental Research (BER) headed by Ari Patrinos.
At the request of the DOE Office of Science, the report was produced by the BER Advisory Commission's (BERAC) Genome Subcommittee, chaired by Raymond Gesteland (University of Utah). It suggests that the new program's major challenge is to understand and predict the responses of single- and multicellular organisms to biological and environmental cues. Elbert Branscomb, first director of DOE's Joint Genome Institute, is in charge of developing the program.
