The Department of Energy’s Office of Energy Efficiency & Renewable Energy’s Bioenergy Technologies Office (BETO)-funded Agile BioFoundry (ABF) consortium is overseeing a funding opportunity for industry and academic partners to utilize ABF capabilities. This funding opportunity provides resources for partners to collaborate with ABF’s investigators for developing novel microbial hosts, augmenting titer, rate and yield of bioproducts, and creating new capabilities and approaches to improve the Design-Build-Test-Learn biomanufacturing cycle. Full details are available here.
To help advance the U.S. bioeconomy, the National Science Foundation and the Department of Energy’s Bioenergy Technologies Office invite proposals from researchers at institutions of higher education and non-profit organizations (eligible PIs). The proposals must leverage the unique Design-Build-Test-Learn capabilities available at the Agile BioFoundry to translate the latest advances in synthetic biology and engineering biology basic research into testable prototype processes and products that are potentially scalable and manufacturable and can be appropriately validated.
