In October 2018, NSF implemented the Domain-based Message Authentication, Reporting & Conformance (DMARC) email changes required by the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) to improve email security. Some email routing practices (such as auto-forwarding to personal email accounts and sending messages through third-party providers) may cause messages to be flagged as potentially fraudulent by DMARC security checks and blocked. If your email is auto-forwarded to another account, such as a personal email account, you may not receive emails from NSF in that forwarded account. More information about DMARC and email delivery from NSF.

The cluster supports proposals that make use of the tools of systems and synthetic biology to generate a comprehensive understanding of complex interactions within biological systems across different scales. Proposals using experimental and computational approaches in a synergistic fashion are a high priority. The cluster seeks proposals using tractable established or emerging model systems that focus on: regulatory and metabolic network dynamics; fundamental rules governing complex behavior; and microbial communities and their interactions.
The cluster encourages proposals that use systems and synthetic biology approaches to examine fundamental properties of biological systems in the areas of:
- Mechanistic modeling of regulatory, signaling, and metabolic networks and the interactions among networks.
- The origins of life, the minimal cell and emerging behaviors of complex interactions.
- Novel experimental and computational tool development including those that facilitate the exploration and discovery of fundamental molecular scale mechanisms.
- Molecular to system-wide scale rules of assembly and function in natural or synthetic microbial communities and symbiotic partnerships.
