NEW YORK (GenomeWeb News) – The Gordon and Betty Moore Foundation has awarded $35 million to fund a number of new research projects focused on discoveries about how microbes interact in the oceans and how they affect ecosystems.

NEW YORK (GenomeWeb News) – The University of Miami broke ground Thursday on a new marine research complex that will include one building focused on marine life sciences research projects and another that will house oceanographic, meteorological, and marine physics-related studies.

The University of Rhode Island has won a $20 million grant from the National Science Foundation — the single largest grant in the university's history — toward molecular biology research in marine life science there and at eight partner academic institutions statewide.

The Marine Genomics and Marine Mammal Institutes will build a new facility with the funds, so long as a larger NIST grant comes through.
