Software is an increasingly important offering that Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory, a U.S. Department of Energy National Lab, provides to industry and the research community. The Lab recently launched a digital brochure featuring a sample of open and closed source software tools (including imaging, omics, and synthetic biology tools) that can accelerate discovery and hasten products-to-market in the biosciences.
The primary contributors to these software tools include Berkeley Lab’s Biosciences Area divisions, as well as the Lab’s Computational Research Divisions and the National Energy Research Scientific Computing Center (NERSC). Other contributors include Sandia National Laboratories and Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory.
Development of these software packages was only possible due to significant investments by the U.S. Department of Energy in world class facilities and research projects and programs, such as the Advanced Light Source, the Joint Genome Institute, the Joint BioEnergy Institute, the Agile BioFoundry, and the Advanced Biofuels and Bioproducts Process Development Unit.
