THE MONITORS OF JGI

The United States Department of Energy (DOE) Joint Genome Institute (JGI) (associated with Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory) has recently demonstrated a heightened interest in the research materials available on www.carnicom.com. This interest appears to correlate with a recent presentation on the topic of atmospheric tests conducted for the presence of mold. That report may be found at the page entitled : An Abundance of Mold.
The mission of the Joint Genome Institute (JGI) is stated as follows:
* To develop and exploit new sequencing and other high-throughput, genome-scale and computational technologies as a means for discovering and characterizing the basic principles and relationships underlying the organization, function, and evolution of living systems.
* To leverage the unique capabilities of the Department of Energy National Laboratory system to achieve these goals, and to use the resulting understanding to address key DOE [Ed : Department of Energy] missions related to energy, the environment, and human susceptibilities.
