ORNL provides an exceptional environment for carrying out the proposed research on plant-microbe interfaces, including cutting-edge resources in plant biology, microbiology, analytical technologies, and computational sciences. Some of these state-of-the-art facilities available for this research are included below.

CNMS  The Center for Nanophase Materials Sciences (CNMS) at ORNL offers the national and international user community access to staff expertise and state-of-the-art equipment for a broad range of nanoscience research, including nanomaterials synthesis, nanofabrication, imaging/microscopy/characterization, and theory/modeling/simulation.

KBase The Department of Energy Systems Biology Knowledgebase (KBase) is a software and data science platform designed to meet the grand challenge of systems biology: predicting and designing biological function. KBase is the first large-scale data science platform that enables users to upload their own data, analyze it alongside collaborator and public data, build increasingly realistic models, and share and publish reproducible workflows and conclusions.

NCCS The National Center for Computational Sciences (NCCS) provides state-of-the-art computational and data science infrastructure and home to the HPE Cray EX Frontier, the fastest computer in the world.

CBI The Center for Bioenergy Innovation (CBI) is a multi-institutional, multidisciplinary research organization focused on accelerating domestication of bioenergy-relevant plants and microbes to enable high-impact, value-added, co-product development at multiples points in the bioenergy supply chain.

JGIThe Joint Genome Institute (JGI) provides expertise and resources in DNA sequencing, informatics, and the development of new technologies to advance sequencing and characterization of organisms relevant to DOE science missions in bioenergy, carbon cycling, and bioremediation.
