Important Information for Proposers

ATTENTION: Proposers using the Collaborators and Other Affiliations template for more than 10 senior project personnel will encounter proposal print preview issues. Please see the Collaborators and Other Affiliations Information website for updated guidance.

A revised version of the NSF Proposal & Award Policies & Procedures Guide (PAPPG) (NSF 18-1), is effective for proposals submitted, or due, on or after January 29, 2018. Please be advised that, depending on the specified due date, the guidelines contained in NSF 18-1 may apply to proposals submitted in response to this funding opportunity.




The goal of this program is to support the development of genome sequence resources that would contribute to a conceptual framework for the interpretation of the structure, function and evolution of genomes of economically important plants. Projects are solicited that focus on a biological question that is enabled by the proposed sequence resources and was unanswerable with existing resources. Proposers must provide clear justification for the plant or plants selected and the type of resource to be generated. Projects should also advance the goals of the Plant Genome Research Program (PGRP).

Types of sequence resource to be supported include, but are not limited to, whole genome sequences of varying coverage, survey sequences (including gene-enriched and end sequences of large insert clones), as well as Expressed Sequence Tags (ESTs). Plant sequencing targets may include, but are not limited to, key nodes of plants in the tree of Life, members of a specific taxon, genus or family, or intraspecific populations.
