Division of Biological Infrastructure

DBI supports varied activities that provide the infrastructure for contemporary research in biology. These include research resources and human resources.

Support for Research Resources includes computational biology, databases, the curatorial improvement and computerization of research collections, living stock collections, the purchase of major items of multi-user instrumentation and the development of new instrumentation, and improvement of research facilities at biological field stations and marine laboratories.

Support for Human Resources includes research experiences for undergraduates (sites), undergraduate mentoring in environmental biology, collaborative research at undergraduate institutions, and, in selected disciplines, postdoctoral research fellowships.

In addition, the Plant Genome Research Program and the crosscutting activities supporting IGERT, GK-12, ADVANCE, and MRI through BIO are housed in DBI.
