Plant Genome Research Program (PGRP)
The NSF Directorate for Biological Sciences (BIO) has implemented a requirement for submission of full proposals via Research.gov (or Grants.gov) for certain program solicitations, including the Plant Genome Research Program solicitation (NSF 21-507). If you have already started a proposal in FastLane, don’t worry, you can still submit it via FastLane. But if you are starting a new proposal, please do so via Research.gov. For more information see the Dear Colleague Letter, NSF 20-129, about this change.
Additional information, including Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs) and video tutorials, is available on the Research.gov "About Proposal Preparation and Submission" webpage. The NSF Help Desk also is available for those who encounter issues with proposal preparation or submission.
Please direct your comments and questions about this change to BIOnodeadline@nsf.gov.

The Plant Genome Research Program (PGRP) supports genome-scale research that addresses challenging questions of biological, societal and economic importance. PGRP encourages the development of innovative tools, technologies and resources that empower a broad plant research community to answer scientific questions on a genome-wide scale. Emphasis is placed on the scale and depth of the question being addressed and the creativity of the approach. Data produced by plant genomics should be usable, accessible, integrated across scales and of high impact across biology. Training, broadening participation, and career development are essential to scientific progress and should be integrated in all PGRP-funded projects.
Two funding tracks are currently available:
1. RESEARCH-PGR TRACK: Genome-scale plant research to address fundamental questions in biology, including processes of economic and/or societal importance.
2. TRTech-PGR TRACK: Tools, resources and technology breakthroughs that further enable functional plant genomics.
