Materials Genome

The Materials Genome Initiative (MGI) is a multi-agency initiative designed to create a new era of policy, resources, and infrastructure that support U.S. institutions in the effort to discover, manufacture, and deploy advanced materials twice as fast, at a fraction of the cost.

US-COMP research activities are directly integrated with MGI. The development of new multiscale computational modeling tools, material characterization techniques, collaborative networking protocols, and a database of ultra-strong composite material properties contribute to the primary mission of MGI.
