NEW YORK, March 20 (GenomeWeb News) - The National Science Foundation is soliciting proposals for a Plant Genome Comparative Sequencing Program.
The program will award $10 million over two years, and is intended to support the Plant Genome Research Program.
According to the PS, which can be found here, the NSF will dispense up to 10 awards of up to $2 million for up to 2 years, pending availability of funds.
The PGCSP is specifically soliciting proposals that focus on biological questions that would be enabled by a particular sequence or sequences, according to the PS. Sequence resources may include, but are not limited to, whole genome sequences, survey sequences, and physical maps.
Proposals are due June 16.
