  BioEnergy & BioFabrication Section    

The BioEnergy & BioFabrication section has a wide range of biological expertise with a focus in energy and biofabrication applications. Bioenergy capabilities range from basic investigations into microbial metabolism and extracellular electron transfer mechanisms to more applied application of biological systems for energy production. Biofabrication efforts are focused on creating heterogeneous three dimensional in vitro tissues via biological laser printing (BioLP) and the use of BioLP to isolate novel microorganisms from environmental samples.

In addition the section has a variety of bioanalytical capabilities including culture facilities (microorganisms and mammalian cells), analytical techniques (thermogravimetric analysis, GC, HPLC, and mass spectrometry (LC/MS/MSn)) for analysis of proteins, fuels or metabolites, molecular biology techniques (polymerase chain reaction (PCR), gel electrophoresis, and real time PCR).
