Deadlines

February 13
Abstract deadline for CSHL’s 21st annual Biology of Genomes meeting.

February 14
Application deadline for the  Discovery of Novel Epigenetic Marks in Mammalian Cells grant. This NIH grant aims to discover novel pathways of epigenetic silencing and gene expression in eukaryotic organisms that may be applicable to human disease.

February 14
Application deadline for the Technology Development in Epigenetics grant. This grant will develop epigenetic technologies as part of the NIH’s Roadmap Epigenomics Program.

February 15
Application deadline for the Development of New Technologies Needed for Studying the Human Microbiome grant. The goal of this NIH grant is to develop new and improved technologies for obtaining novel human microbiota samples for sequencing.

February 15
Application deadline for the grant, Development of New tools for Computational Analysis of Human Microbiome Project Data. This NIH grant will promote developing new and improved computational tools for the analysis, interpretation, and validation of data generated from the Human Microbiome Program.

February 19
Application deadline for the NSF grant, Microbial Genome Sequencing Program. This grant will support genome sequencing of microorganisms, including viruses, bacteria, archaea, fungi, oomycetes, protists, and agriculturally important nematodes.

February 28
Application deadline for Development and Application of New Technologies to Targeted Genome-wide Resequencing in Well-Phenotyped Populations. This NIH grant aims to develop and validate a resequencing application for cost-effective sequencing of genome-wide medical targets.

March 14
Applications due for Assembling the Tree of Life. This NSF grant will support projects in data acquisition, analysis, algorithm development, and dissemination in computational phylogenetics and phyloinformatics.

The Scan

Missed Early Cases

A retrospective analysis of blood samples suggests early SARS-CoV-2 infections may have been missed in the US, the New York Times reports.

Limited Journal Editor Diversity

A survey finds low diversity among scientific and medical journal editors, according to The Scientist.

How Much of a Threat?

Science writes that need for a provision aimed at shoring up genomic data security within a new US bill is being questioned.

PNAS Papers on Historic Helicobacter Spread, Brain Development, C. difficile RNAs

In PNAS this week: Helicobacter genetic diversity gives insight into human migrations, gene expression patterns of brain development, and more.
