Deadlines

March 6
Application deadline for the NIH Deep Sequencing and Haplotype Profiling of Mental Disorders grant.  This grant will support large-scale research that uses in-depth sequencing and candidate gene studies to examine the genetic risk factors of seven major mental disorders: anorexia, ADHD, autism and related autism spectrum disorders, depression, bipolar disorder, obsessive compulsive disorder, and schizophrenia.

March 8
Application deadline for the grant, Reference Epigenome Mapping Centers. The NIH will support applicants to develop comprehensive reference epigenomes from human embryonic stem cells, human differentiating and differentiated cells, cell lines, and tissues.

March 14
Application deadline for the Non-coding RNAs and Other Post-transcriptional Regulatory Mechanisms in Neuroplasticity and Addiction grant. The purpose of this NIH grant is to promote research on noncoding RNAs pertaining to addictive processes.

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

March 17
Abstract deadline for the second annual RNAi World Congress meeting.

March 19
Application deadline for the Protein Data Bank Management grant. These NSF funds will support a plan to lead, administer, and coordinate community datasets for the Protein Data Bank.

March 19
Application deadline for the NIH grant, Drug Docking and Screening Data Resource. This grant aims to increase the amount of high-quality drug target data for the development of ligand docking and screening software.

March 28
Application deadline for the HIV-1 and Host Genetics in Drug Using Populations and Model Organisms grant. This NIH grant will fund research into molecular mechanisms of HIV-1 infection.
