Deadlines

October 3
Abstract submission deadline for the Plant and Animal Genome XVII conference to be held in San Diego from January 10-14.

October 3
Application deadline for the NIH Limited Competition for the Biomedical Informatics Research Network Community Service Award. The purpose of this award is to facilitate communication between biomedical researchers and the BIRN Coordinating Center.

October 3
Application deadline for the Development of New Technologies Needed for Studying the Human Microbiome grant. This NIH grant will fund studies to develop improved technologies for expanding the number of "reference" microbial genome sequences from the human microbiota.

October 3
Application deadline for the Molecular Libraries Screening Instrumentation grant. The purpose of this NIH award is to develop and evaluate instrumentation for small-molecule, high-throughput screening.

October 16
Abstract submission deadline for the AAAS Annual Meeting, to be held from February 12-16 in Chicago.

October 18
Application deadline for the grant, Functional Characterization of Genetic Variants and Interactions: The Genes, Environment, and Health Initiative. These NIH funds support using genome-wide association studies, candidate gene approaches, or sequencing studies to functionally characterize genetic variants of disease.

October 23
Application deadlines for the NIH grant, Revolutionary Genome Sequencing Technologies – The $1000 Genome. This award will fund research to develop novel technologies enabling low-cost, high-quality sequencing of a mammalian-sized genome for $1000.

October 23
Application deadline for the grant, Research on Causal Factors and Interventions that Promote and Support the Careers of Women in Biomedical and Behavioral Science and Engineering. This NIH money will support research on the causal factors of current patterns of women in biomedical and behavioral science and engineering and the efficacy of support programs.

October 25
Application deadline for the NIGMS National Centers for Systems Biology award. This NIH award will fund applicants for National Centers for Systems Biology.

October 29
Application deadlines for the Epigenomics of Human Health and Disease grant, an NIH award that supports projects attempting to map the epigenomes of diseased, aged, or environmentally compromised human primary cells or tissues.

October 30
Application deadline for the Collaborative Research in Computational Neuroscience grant. This NSF award will fund collaborative, computational research to understand nervous system disorders.
