CSREES requests applications for the Children, Youth, and Families at Risk Liaison for fiscal year (FY) 2009 to coordinate fieldwork and provide technical assistance to CYFAR community and state projects. CYFAR Liaisons provide technical assistance to CYFAR community and state projects through the resources of CYFERnet. These CYFAR liaisons also provide feedback to CSREES regarding impact and the needs of community programs for at-risk youth and families. The Liaison's assignments will be expected to be carried out at the recipient's university/institution, but will include three to four in-person meetings with the CYFAR staff in the Families, 4-H and Nutrition Unit in CSREES, USDA.
CSREES requests applications for the Children, Youth and Families Education and Research Network (CYFERnet) for fiscal year (FY) 2009 to marshal resources of the Land-Grant and Cooperative Extension Systems so that, in collaboration with other organizations, they can develop and deliver educational programs that equip limited resource families and youth who are at risk for not meeting basic human needs with the skills they need to lead positive, productive, contributing lives. The goal of CYFERnet is to provide an Internet-based network of program, technology, and evaluation resources and technical assistance to university and community program for at-risk children, youth, and families organized around the five CYFAR National Outcomes for Early Childhood, School Age, Teen, Parent/Family, and Community.
The Consortium for Plant Biotechnology Research, Inc. ("CPBR"), is now issuing the Request for Preproposals for its 2010 competitions. The 2009 competitions are still in process as Congressional appropriations are not yet knows.
Many different types of systems are being used to house gestating sows throughout the world today. Research has shown that these housing systems in current use have advantages and disadvantages for the overall well-being of the gestating sow. Currently, the National Pork Board's Animal Welfare Committee sow housing research priorities target the development and evaluation of new and innovative housing systems and the optimization of components within existing housing systems. In efforts to further focus these research priorities and to develop educational resources for producers, the Pork Checkoff is making a special request for proposals to conduct exhaustive, systematics reviews of the domestic and international literature on any one of the following three categories: 1) Individual stalls (specifically includes straight sided stalls, turn around stalls, and any other enclosed, individual housing system excluding free-access stalls); 2) Group pens- individual feeding (electric sow feeders, free-access stalls, feeding stalls, etc.) 3) Group pens- group feeding (drop feeding, trickle feeding, etc).
The Directorate for Biological Sciences (BIO) of the National Science Foundation (NSF) announces its intention to continue support of research to determine the functions of all genes in the model plant Arabidopsis thaliana by the year 2010. Individual investigators or groups of investigators will be supported to conduct creative and innovative, genome-wide or systems-level research designed to determine, using all available means, the functions of Arabidopsis genes. This year, as in FY 2007, the Program will focus on: 1) research on exemplary networks using high throughput methods and integrating modeling with experimental data to understand the gene circuitry underlying basic plant processes; 2) projects that will develop experimental and computational methods, tools, and resources for enabling a broad community of scientists to conduct functional genomics research on Arabidopsis; and 3) projects to perform genome-wide analyses of the gene function.

This amendment announces proposal opportunities for Education and Public Outreach supplemental awards. Principal Investigators (Pis) of selected Science Mission Directorate (SMD) research investigations may propose for Education or Outreach awards as supplements to their research award.
The Solar and Heliospheric Physics (SHP) program has as its objective the comprehensive study of all five solar and heliospheric research areas, namely the solar interior, solar photosphere, solar chromosphere and corona, inner heliosphere, and outer heliosphere and the interstellar boundary, through two main research thrusts, one characterized by nonflight Supporting Research and Technology (SR&T) that may be carried out in the office, observatory, or laboratory setting and one carried out by experiment hardware carried as the primary payload on balloons, sounding rockets, or as secondary, rocket-class payloads on flights of opportunity that is generically referred to as Low Cost Access to Space. Proposals in interdisciplinary research areas (e.g. solar-stellar connections) are appropriate for this program if the proposed research has clear application to Heliophysics program goals.

43-9 Renewal and Supplemental Applications for the Office of Science Grants and Cooperative Agreements (DOE)
The Office of Science (SC) of the Department of Energy (DOE) hereby announces its continuing interest in receiving renewal and supplemental grant and cooperative agreement applications for support of work in the following program areas: Basic Energy Sciences, High Energy Physics, Nuclear Physics, Advanced Scientific Computing Research, Fusion Energy Sciences, Biological and Environmental Research, and Planning and Analysis.
The Major Research Instrumentation Program (MRI) serves to increase access to shared scientific and engineering instruments for research and research training in our Nation's institutions of higher education, museums and science centers, and non-profit organizations. This program especially seeks to improve the quality and expand the scope of research and research training in science and engineering, by providing shared instrumentation that fosters the integration of research and education in research-intensive learning environments. To accomplish these goals, the MRI program assists with the acquisition or development of shared research instrumentation that is, in general, too costly and/or not appropriate for support through other NSF programs. For the purposes of the MRI Program, proposals must be for either acquisition or development. A key recommendation of a 2006 National Academies report on "Advanced Research Instrumentation and Facilities" (ARIF) was that the NSF should expand the MRI program so that it includes mid-scale instrumentation whose capital costs are greater than $2 million, but with costs that are not appropriate for NSF's Major Research Equipment and Facilities Construction account. The MRI program now accepts proposals requesting over $2 million in NSF support (to maximum request of $4 million) for the acquisition of a single instrument. Limit on Number of Proposals per Organization is 1) The MRI program requires that an organization may submit or be included as a funded subawardee/subcontractor in no more than three MRI proposals. No more than two proposal submissions may be for instrument acquisition. NSF 09-502 (GG 10/24/08)
