Description:

The Office of Biological and Environmental Research
(OBER) of the Office of
Science (SC), U.S. Department of Energy (DOE), hereby announces its
interest in
receiving applications for the Poplar Genome Based Research for Carbon
Sequestration in Terrestrial Ecosystems program. Research is requested that

could lead to strategies to improve the use of trees within the genus
Populus
(poplar), or other trees, for long-term sequestration of meaningful amounts
of
atmospheric carbon in terrestrial ecosystems. Specifically, applications
are
sought for research to use the poplar and/or microbial genomic sequences to

enhance partitioning of carbon into quantitatively important recalcitrant
components of trees or soil organic matter that could lead to enhanced
carbon
sequestration. Research should build on the recently completed genomic
sequence
of a female black cottonwood tree (Populus balsamifera L. ssp. trichocarpa
(Torr. Gray ex Hook.) Brayshaw, clone Nisqually-1) and, when relevant,
the
availability of a growing number of microbial genomic sequences to obtain
the
scientific understanding needed to select, breed, or manage trees to
meaningfully enhance sequestration of carbon in tree biomass and/or the
soil.
