This website is based on Research Frontiers in Bioinspired Energy: Molecular-level Learning from Natural Systems, a workshop hosted by the National Academies January 6-7, 2011. The workshop was organized by the Committee on Research Frontiers in Bioinspired Energy, a committee convened by the National Academies’ Board on Chemical Sciences and Technology.
The workshop provided a forum for discussing how molecular-level research on natural systems can inform new approaches to energy. The workshop report and this website highlight cutting-edge science in this area but do not attempt to present any consensus findings or recommendations.
The workshop and this website were supported by the U.S. Department of Energy under Award DE- SC0002584 and the National Science Foundation under Grant CBET- 0948076.
