Researchers Led by Dartmouth Receive $9M NIH Grant to Analyze Gene Functions of Filamentous Fungus

NEW YORK, May 13 (GenomeWeb News) - Researchers led by Dartmouth Medical School have received a $9 million NIH grant to study functions of the genome of the filamentous fungus Neurospora crassa, the school said yesterday.


Under the five-year NIGMS grant, researchers at DMS's department of genetics will study the fungus in collaboration with colleagues at UC Berkeley; University of California Los Angeles; MIT; University of New Mexico; University of Missouri; University of California, Riverside; and Oregon Health Sciences University.


The scientists are planning to disrupt fungal genes systematically, produce an electronic platform for annotations and feedback, analyze gene expression under several growth conditions, generate cDNA libraries, and create a SNP map from wild type and related strains.
