Grants to USA and territories entities and teams for basic scientific research that will enhance understanding of different microbial processes in the ecosystem. Applicants must submit a pre-application in order to be considered for funding. Required registrations may take several weeks to complete.
The DOE SC program in Biological and Environmental Research (BER) hereby announces its interest in receiving applications for research within the Biological System Science Division (BSSD) Genomic Science Program (GSP) mission-space. This FOA solicits applications for basic research that will fundamentally enhance or transform our understanding of microbial processes in terrestrial ecosystems. Of interest to the Program are interdisciplinary projects grounded in holistic, systems-level approaches to understand microbial community interactions and biogeochemical cycling. Specifically, the Program seeks to elucidate fundamental principles that advance our understanding of regulatory, metabolic, and signaling networks among microbes, in microbe-plant interactions, the cycling and long-term storage or sequestration of carbon in soils, and the biogeochemical conversion of other elements, including nutrients, particularly as they relate to rapidly changing environmental conditions.
Proposed studies might include, but are not limited to the following topic areas:
