Argonne National Laboratory

Research projects in Argonne's Biosciences Division range from fundamental studies of genome sequences using molecular biology and computational strategies as well as experimental validation of protein structure/function to detailed analysis of field samples for the characterization of natural biochemical processes at the molecular level.

Mission

The mission of the Biosciences Division is to use state-of-the-art technology to conduct multidisciplinary basic research that will increase our understanding of the fundamental molecular mechanisms of life with the goal of enabling important advances in environmental protection and remediation, energy production and sustainability, and human health and welfare.
