of Biological Infrastructure
DBI supports varied activities that provide the infrastructure for
contemporary research in biology. These include research resources
and human resources.
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.
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.
the Plant Genome Research Program and the crosscutting activities
supporting IGERT, GK-12, ADVANCE, and MRI through BIO are housed
