Plant Genome Research

The Plant Genome Research Program was initiated in FY 1998. It is part of the National Plant Genome Initiative established by the Office of Science and Technology Policy. The long-term goal of this program is to understand the structure, organization and function of plant genomes important to agriculture, the environment, energy and health.
Deadline Date: October 8, 2004
Program Solicitation: NSF 04-510

Maize Genome Sequencing Project  
Under the auspices of the National Plant Genome Initiative (NPGI), the NSF, DOE, and USDA announce their intention to support large-scale sequencing of the maize genome.  Previous funding has supported development of maize genome sequence resources, including physical and genetic maps, Expressed Sequence Tags (ESTs), sequences derived from gene-enriched genomic libraries, Bacterial Artificial Chromosome (BAC) sequences, and a community genome database. The objective of this program solicitation is to solicit proposals that build on these resources to develop a comprehensive sequence resource for the maize genome that will capture the majority of the sequence information in a timely and cost-effective manner.
Deadline Date: February 18, 2005
Program Solicitation: NSF 04-614 NEW
