User Facilities at a Glance

BER User Facilities

The Biological and Environmental Research program supports the following national scientific user facilities:

Atmospheric Radiation Measurement (ARM) user facility

at Global Network

ARM is a multi-platform scientific user facility with instruments at fixed and varying locations around the globe for obtaining continuous field measurements of atmospheric data.

Environmental Molecular Sciences Laboratory (EMSL)

at Pacific Northwest National Laboratory

EMSL provides the scientific community with a problem-solving environment that enables researchers to use multiple combinations of capabilities to obtain a mechanistic understanding of physical, chemical, and intra- and inter-cellular processes and interactions, and to incorporate this information into numerical models to better understand how biological, environmental, atmospheric, and energy systems function at higher spatial- and temporal scales, and to address complex challenges facing DOE and the nation.

Joint Genome Institute (JGI)

at Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory

JGI provides genome sequencing, genome data acquisition, and genome analyses in support of DOE mission needs in bioenergy, carbon cycling and biosequestration, and biogeochemical processes.
