Biotechnology—a foundation for multidisciplinary science

Contact us: 509-375-3776

Biological activity can occur across a range of scales, from the nanoscale—involving atomic ions—to the macromolecular level of an entire organism. PNNL researchers are creating computational and theoretical methods that incorporate information across scales. Their goal is to develop an underlying infrastructure for scientists that will support ongoing research and transform the work environment with new tools to accomplish the multidisciplinary science essential for a systems or integrated approach to biology. Current efforts include obtaining real-time data from living cells and predicting how cells behave, looking at DNA repair and protein structures.
