Deadlines

February 5
Application deadline for the Technology Development for High-Throughput Structural Biology Research grant. This National Institute of General Medical Sciences grant will support investigators who are developing novel technologies and methodologies for high-throughput structural biology. The announcement says that applicants should focus on developing methods for solving proteins that aren't amenable to current methods.

February 18
Application due date for the Plant Feedstock Genomics for Bioenergy grant. This US Department of Energy funding opportunity will support genomics research into improving biomass and plant feedstocks for fuel production.

February 19
Abstract deadline for the Biology of Genomes meeting to be held at Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory in May.

February 22
Poster submission deadline for the 14th International Conference on Research in Computational Molecular Biology to be held in Lisbon, Portugal, in April.

March 19
Poster submission deadline for the Intelligent Systems for Molecular Biology conference to be held in Boston in July.

March 22
Proposal deadline for Assembling the Tree of Life. This National Science Foundation grant will support efforts to parse the evolutionary relationships between organisms as well as projects that acquire and analyze data and develop and share algorithms for computational phylogenetics and phyloinformatics.

March 24
Application due date for the Systems Biology Approach to the Mechanisms of TB Latency and Reactivation grant. This National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute grant will fund a multidisciplinary approach to study and model tuberculosis latency and reactivation to be tested in humans or non-human primates.

May 25
Application deadline for the Initiative to Maximize Research Education in Genomics grant. This NHGRI grant supports education and training initiatives.

May 25
Application deadline for the Ruth L. Kirschstein National Research Service Award Institutional Research Training Grants to support predoctoral and postdoctoral researchers.

The Scan

Genome Sequences Reveal Range Mutations in Induced Pluripotent Stem Cells

Researchers in Nature Genetics detect somatic mutation variation across iPSCs generated from blood or skin fibroblast cell sources, along with selection for BCOR gene mutations.

Researchers Reprogram Plant Roots With Synthetic Genetic Circuit Strategy

Root gene expression was altered with the help of genetic circuits built around a series of synthetic transcriptional regulators in the Nicotiana benthamiana plant in a Science paper.

Infectious Disease Tracking Study Compares Genome Sequencing Approaches

Researchers in BMC Genomics see advantages for capture-based Illumina sequencing and amplicon-based sequencing on the Nanopore instrument, depending on the situation or samples available.

LINE-1 Linked to Premature Aging Conditions

Researchers report in Science Translational Medicine that the accumulation of LINE-1 RNA contributes to premature aging conditions and that symptoms can be improved by targeting them.
