The folks at The Scientist are running a contest for readers to vote for their favorite videos and websites. Browsing through the videos on The Scientist Labbies, Readers’ Choice site (be sure to watch the videos and vote for your favorite) I came across a visually stunning animation by the US Department of Energy Joint Genome Institute (DOE JGI).
The DOE JGI unites the expertise of five national laboratories to advance genomics in support of the DOE missions related to clean energy generation and environmental characterization and cleanup. JGI’s Walnut Creek, California, facility provides integrated high-throughput sequencing and computational analysis that enable systems-based scientific approaches to these challenges.
Scientists affiliated with JGI are prolific publishers of scientific articles and industrious contributors to Genbank.
Check out this mesmerizing video (the graphics are great thanks to recent graduates and staff at the Ex’pression College for Digital Arts) to learn more about JGI’s mission.
