Recent NSF Awards


For this month’s list of grant information, GT checked in on the National Science Foundation. The agency, which has an annual budget of about $6 billion, has given a number of awards recently that promise to bear fruit for the ‘omics community.

In rounding up awards, GT looked at all grants issued from the end of May onward, and selected for this chart the ones that were most closely related to genomics, proteomics, and bioinformatics. This is by no means a comprehensive list of NSF’s funding in the area. The amount shown for award indicates funding for the current year.

The Scan

Genetic Testing Approach Explores Origins of Blastocyst Aneuploidy

Investigators in AJHG distinguish between aneuploidy events related to meiotic missegregation in haploid cells and those involving post-zygotic mitotic errors and mosaicism.

Study Looks at Parent Uncertainties After Children's Severe Combined Immunodeficiency Diagnoses

A qualitative study in EJHG looks at personal, practical, scientific, and existential uncertainties in parents as their children go through SCID diagnoses, treatment, and post-treatment stages.

Antimicrobial Resistance Study Highlights Key Protein Domains

By screening diverse versions of an outer membrane porin protein in Vibrio cholerae, researchers in PLOS Genetics flagged protein domain regions influencing antimicrobial resistance.

Latent HIV Found in White Blood Cells of Individuals on Long-Term Treatments

Researchers in Nature Microbiology find HIV genetic material in monocyte white blood cells and in macrophages that differentiated from them in individuals on HIV-suppressive treatment.
