SYNOPSIS

The Directorate for Biological Sciences (BIO) of the National Science Foundation (NSF) announces its intention to continue support of research to determine the functions of all genes in the model plant Arabidopsis thaliana by the year 2010. Individual investigators or groups of investigators will be supported to conduct creative and innovative, genome-wide or systems-level research designed to determine, using all available means, the functions of Arabidopsis genes. In the final two years, the Program will continue to support genome-wide analyses and research on biological networks using high throughput methods and integrating modeling with experimental data. Proposals are encouraged in, but not limited to, the following thematic areas:  (1) metabolic biology, particularly relevant to energy capture and use; (2) adaptation to the environment, (3) multi-scale analysis of genome evolution and genetic systems, and (4) developing resources for genome-wide experimental approaches to determine gene function in Arabidopsis. Resource proposals will only be accepted in FY 2009.
