November 1 — Full proposals due for NSF solicitation 05-603, the Plant Genome Research Program. This year NSF will focus on “major unanswered questions in plant biology on a genome-wide scale”; translational research from model organisms to economically important plants; and development of technology “to enable discovery in plant genomics.”


November 1 — Abstract submission opens for the US HUPO Second Annual Symposium to be held in Boston next March.


November 14 — Abstract submission deadline for the AACR 2006 annual meeting to be held in Washington, DC, next April.


November 21 — Abstract submission deadline for the annual Drosophila research conference, which will be held in late March in Houston. Revisions may be made until November 25.


November 29 — Complete proposals due for NIBIB-NSF program solicitation 05-611, the Bioengineering and Bioinformatics Summer Institutes Program. It is expected that 15 standard or continuing grants will be made in FY 2006 for programs to begin in the summer of 2006.


December 1 — Deadline to fill out survey on DNA fragment analysis for the related research group of the Association of Biomolecular Resource Facilities. Findings will be presented at ABRF 2006.

Mosquitos Genetically Modified to Prevent Malaria Spread

A gene drive approach could be used to render mosquitos unable to spread malaria, researchers report in Science Advances.

Gut Microbiomes Allow Bears to Grow to Similar Sizes Despite Differing Diets

Researchers in Scientific Reports find that the makeup of brown bears' gut microbiomes allows them to reach similar sizes even when feasting on different foods.

Finding Safe Harbor in the Human Genome

In Genome Biology, researchers present a new approach to identify genomic safe harbors where transgenes can be expressed without affecting host cell function.
