The NMC Biological Laboratory and Greenhouse supports cross-disciplinary and cross-institutional initiatives in Plant Biology and Biomedical Technology and Engineering. University faculty and researchers from Los Alamos National Laboratory and across the world collaborate in our laboratory on global challenges in food security, medicine and sustainable energy. NMC’s plant biology and biomedical technology initiatives are uniquely positioned at the frontier of a fertile research area with a tremendous potential return.


The NMC Biological Laboratory integrates and analyzes genomic, phenomic, transcriptomic, proteomic and metabolomic data to form a complete picture of cell function. Advances in technology allow us to integrate this multiple discipline capability in one laboratory for the first time. The collective expertise of the NMC partnership in the relevant scientific disciplines function sets us apart in this highly interdisciplinary field. The NMC is uniquely positioned to deliver research on these multiple disciplines and expertise and exponentially increase our understanding of cell function.
