A flood of new information, from whole-genome sequences to detailed structural information to inventories of earth's biota, is transforming 21st century biology. Along with comparative data on morphology, fossils, development, behavior, and interactions of all forms of life on earth, these new data streams make even more critical the need for an organizing framework for information retrieval, analysis, and prediction. Phylogeny, the genealogical map for all lineages of life on earth, provides an overall framework to facilitate information retrieval and biological prediction. The National Science Foundation announces its intention to continue support of multidisciplinary teams to conduct creative and innovative research that will resolve phylogenetic relationships for large groups of organisms on the Tree of Life. Teams of investigators also will be supported for projects in data acquisition, analysis, algorithm development and dissemination in computational phylogenetics and phyloinformatics.

Building on work supported under the multi-agency Digital Libraries Initiative, this program aims to establish a national digital library that will constitute an online network of learning environments and resources for science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) education at all levels. The program has three tracks: 1) Pathways projects are expected to provide stewardship for the content and services needed by major communities of learners. 2) Services projects are expected to develop services that support users, resource collection providers, and the Core Integration effort and that enhance the impact, efficiency, and value of the library. 3) Targeted Research projects are expected to explore specific topics that have immediate applicability to collections, services, and other aspects of the development of the digital library. In FY2007 the program will only accept proposals in the Pathways track and specific components on the Services track. The program will also accept proposals for small grants that extend or enhance results from existing services, collections, or targeted research activity so as to enlarge the user audience for NSDL or improve capabilities for the user.

The New Faculty Awards program was established to provide funding for new faculty members at the start of their research and teaching activities. While most talented young faculty apply for, and are table o secure, external research support, in most cases such support does not ordinarily become available before the end of the first year of appointment. Thus, a key feature of the award is an unrestricted research grant that is awarded before the new faculty member formally begins the first year appointment. The New Faculty Award Program is open to all academic institutions in the United States, Districts, and Territories of the United States of America that grant a doctoral degree in chemistry, biochemistry, or chemical engineering. Faculty members who start their first tenure-track appointment in one of these departments in 2007 are eligible for nomination in 2007. Internal coordination is required. Institutions may make only one nomination annually for these awards.
