Enjoying our time at the World of Genomics today in St. Louis! Photo 1: teaming up with @RIPEproject to show how genetic engineering makes better plants for food and fuel. Photo 2: Yeast samples provided by Co-PI Bruce Dien from his @USDA_ARS Peoria lab.


Caitlin Moore, a @Illinois_Alma Plant Biology Postdoc Researcher, is one of the first non-faculty-level members of the #CABBI Sustainability theme. Her work revolves around a set of flux towers at the Energy Farm. 🌾

CABBI Colloquia

Once a month, CABBI is organizing a colloquium for all of its researchers. At every colloquium, one grad student, postdoc, or PI will give a 20-minute presentation on his or her CABBI research. The presenter finishes the presentation with discussion questions to the audience in order to identify new integration opportunities within a theme, across CABBI themes, and/or with other U.S. Department of Energy Bioenergy Research Centers (BRCs). Each colloquium will finish with a networking event, including refreshments.

In the audience are CABBI researchers from all three themes. Scientists from the partner institutions are encouraged to attend and/or present through Zoom. The presenters will rotate among the themes and partner institutions.
