The KSU Ecological Genomics Institute invites research proposals from scientists at Kansas State University for seed grants ranging up to $75,000 over a two-year period. Ecological Genomics seeks to understand the genetic mechanisms that underlie responses of organisms to their natural environment. This initiative will support interdisciplinary research that combines genomic and ecological approaches. Priority for funding will be given to those applications that show promise of attracting extramural funds. Potential applicants should visit the KSU Ecological Genomics website, http://www.ksu.edu/ecogen, to gain a better understanding of the scope of the program. These grants may fund research by new and established KSU faculty. Funding for these seed grants has been made possible through support from Targeted Excellence.
The Microbial Observatories (MO) and Microbial Interactions and Processes (MIP) activities will support research to discover and characterize novel microorganisms, microbial consortia, communities, activities and other novel properties, and to study their roles in diverse environments. The Microbial Observatories activity is a continuation of MO competitions held since 1999. The long-term goal of this activity is to develop a network of sites or microbial observatories in different habitats to study and understand microbial diversity over time and across environmental gradients. Microbial Interactions and Processes (MIP) expands the range of the MO competition to support microbial diversity research projects that need to be site-based, and that are smaller and/or shorter in duration than MO projects.
