Funding Informatics

Premium

As we watched one announcement after another of public funding for computational biology centers come out recently (see story, p. 11), it seemed like the time was ripe to take a look at some of the biggest grants NIH has awarded to the field. Here, we list grants that were issued between Jan. 1 and Sept. 15, 2005, that clearly support bioinformatics research. For the sake of space, we selected only the largest of the grants given out. This list is not comprehensive.
