June 8 — Poster submission deadline for the 5th European Conference on Computational Biology 2006. Software demo proposals are also due on this date.

June 16 — Full proposals are due in response to NSF solicitation 06-555, Plant Genome Comparative Sequencing Program.

June 15 — Closing date to get applications in for the USDA’s Animal Genome National Research Initiative, also known by the catchy handle USDA-GRANTS-101705-001.

June 21 — Applications due for NHGRI’s research initiative on the Identification of All Functional Elements in Selected Model Organism Genomes, RFA-HG-06-006. Between six and 12 awards will be made under this RFA, which will be funded with $16.5 million dollars.

June 21 — Both letters of intent and applications are due at NHGRI for RFA-HG-06-007, A Data Coordination Center for the Model Organism ENCODE Project (modENCODE). A total of $1.5 million dollars per year in total costs for three years is to be awarded through this RFA.

June 23 — Applications are due for RFA-RM-06-007, Nanomedicine Development Centers by the NIH Nanomedicine Roadmap program. Each multidisciplinary center will join a network of four NDCs that were awarded in fiscal year 2005.

June 24 — Applications due in response to PAR-06-088, Innovations in Biomedical Computational Science and Technology SBIR Initiative. The NIH asks that projects “span the interface of biomedical research and biomedical computational science and technology.”

June 26 — Poster presentation abstract submission deadline for the Society for Biomolecular Science’s 12th Annual Conference and Exhibition.

June 27 — Registration begins for the 232nd National Meeting of the American Chemical Society.

June 30 — Early registration due for the International Conference of Immunogenomics and Immunomics.

July 1HUPO 5th Annual World Congress abstract submission deadline.

July 1 — Final deadline to submit abstracts for the poster session at the 7th International Conference on Systems Biology. Topics include systems biology for medicine, systems biology of basic biological processes, and expanding fronts in systems biology.

July 11 — Applications are due in response to NSF’s program solicitation 05-0577, Biological Databases and Informatics. The program encourages research on new methods, data structure, metadatabase architectures, algorithms, ontologies, and related sofware tools for biology.


July 12 — Full proposal target date for PD 04-1114, Cellular Systems Cluster. This NSF program focuses on the structure, function, and regulation of plant, animal, and microbial cells, and their interactions with the environment and with one another. Research using multidisciplinary approaches, computation and modeling, and approaches that exploit genomic information is encouraged.


July 15 — Young Investigator Award Competition deadline for HUPO 5th Annual World Congress.
