ORNL's has distinctive expertise and facilities in a wide range of biological fields. Biologists rely on knowledge of materials, physics, computing and mathematics to advance knowledge and create breakthroughs in applied and basic research problems. We study living things at levels ranging from interactions among whole populations of organisms to the molecular mechanisms in cellular chemistry. In addition, biologists investigate more global processes such as terrestrial ecosystem and subsurface biogeochemical processes; climate change and environmental modeling; and analysis of impacts and interdependencies of climate change with energy production and use.
