  • The Energy Biosciences program supports research in the plant and microbial sciences aimed at understanding fundamental mechanisms of biological energy conversion and conservation. The program mission is to generate a fundamental understanding about biological mechanisms and organisms on which future biotechnologies involving energy are to be built. Areas of interest include bioenergetic systems, including photosynthesis; control of plant growth and development, including metabolic, genetic, and hormonal and environmental regulation, mechanisms of stress adaptation; genetic transmission and expression; plant microbial interactions, plant cell wall structure and function; lignocellulose degradative mechanisms; mechanisms of fermentations, genetics of neglected microorganisms, microbial energetics and membranemore » phenomena; properties of {open_quotes}extremphiles{close_quotes}, i.e., thermophily (molecular basis of high temperature tolerance); microbial consortia interactions; and one-carbon metabolism, which is the basis of biotransformations such as methanogenesis.« less
  • Sandia National Laboratories is currently involved in several experimental projects to provide data that will help quantify the threat of hydrogen combustion during LWR accidents. One project, which employs several experimental facilities, is the Variable Geometry Experimental System (VGES). The purpose of this paper is to present descriptions of an experimental results from two of these facilities: an intermediate-scale burn tank (approx. 5 m/sup 3/) and a critical-tube-diameter test facility.
