United States-Israel Binational Science Foundation (BSF) and U.S. National Science Foundation (NSF) - Biological Sciences Directorate (BIO)
Grants to Israel and USA scientists affiliated with qualified organizations or institutions for genomics research. Funding is intended to support the development of technologies, resources, tools, and infrastructure related to genome and phenotype research. The goal of the program is to support research to advance understanding of comparative and functional genomics.
The EDGE program supports the development of innovative tools, technologies, resources, and infrastructure that advance biological research focused on the identification of the causal mechanisms connecting genes and phenotypes. The EDGE program also supports functional genomic research that addresses the mechanistic basis of complex traits in diverse organisms within the context (environmental, developmental, social, and/or genomic) in which they function. These goals are essential to uncovering the rules that underlie genomes-to-phenomes relationships and predict phenotype, an area relevant to Understanding the Rules of Life: Predicting Phenotype, one of the 10 Big Ideas for NSF investment. The goals also support the NHGRI priority to establish the roles and relationships of all genes and regulatory elements in pathways, networks, and phenotypes.
GrantWatch ID#: 193942
The size of the BSF grant to the Israeli is expected to be up to 80,000$/year for experimental programs and up to $55,000/year for theoretical or computer-based program. If more than a single Israeli group is involved in the research, the budget may be increased by up to 50%.
BSF will follow the decision by the U.S. funding agency regarding the length of the project.
