Welcome to the Biological and Environmental Research Abstracts Database

The U.S. Department of Energy's Office of Biological and Environmental Research (BER) conducts research in the areas of Climate and Environmental Sciences and Biological Systems Science. This database contains abstracts of research projects supported by the program. Work was performed at DOE Laboratories as well as at nearly 300 universities and other research institutions. As of October 1, 2014, this is a historical database that includes the proposal abstracts, from the awarded proposals, from October 1, 1992 to September 30, 2013.
