The U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) has launched the National Virtual Biotechnology Laboratory (NVBL) to unite the efforts of its 17 laboratories around the country in the fight against COVID-19.

The NVBL brings together capabilities across the complex for tackling COVID-19 and creates a new front door for the broader research community to work with the laboratories on this challenge, according to the DOE. The DOE said that it has identified seven major areas where the national labs can provide unique contributions in the effort against COVID-19: molecular structure determination, computational modeling and simulation, epidemiological and logistics support, knowledge discovery infrastructure/scalable protected data, large-scale genomic science capabilities, testing of clinical and nonclinical samples, and supply chain bottleneck.
