Description:

Request a Grant Writer

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.

Estimated Size of Grant:

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%.

Term of Contract:

BSF will follow the decision by the U.S. funding agency regarding the length of the project.

Additional Eligibility Criteria:

- Scientists who wish to apply for grants must submit their applications through a legal entity. The BSF accepts research applications from non-profit organizations only, including institutions of higher learning, government research institutions, and hospitals.

However, the research performed by the investigator affiliated with a for-profit organization will not be funded by the BSF, unless specified differently

The NSF accepts applications only from U.S. scientists. A U.S. scientist submitting an application with an Israeli colleague to the NSF is only subject to the NSF eligibility rules.
