RE: Genome Canada’s 2015 Bioinformatics and Computational Biology Competition (B/CB2)
Genome Canada has recently launched a new program: the 2015 Bioinformatics and Computational Biology Competition (B/CB2). This program aims to support the development of next generation Bioinformatics and Computational Biology tools and methodologies that will be required by the research community to deal with the influx of large amounts of data produces by modern genomics technologies, as well as provide broad and timely access of these new Bioinformatics and Computational Biology tools to the research community.
There is a total of $4 million available for this competition with a maximum investment of $250,000 to individual projects and no co-funding is required. Projects requiring less than $125,000 will not be considered unless well justified. Successful projects will be awarded funding for a term of up to two years. To be eligible for this competition, the essential components and outcomes of the proposed project must be sufficiently targeted to the requirements of the genomics research community.
To ensure that potential projects are eligible for this competition, interested applicants are strongly encouraged to contact Genome BC as soon as possible. The RFA, application documents and more information on this competition can be found on Genome BC’s website at the following link: http://www.genomebc.ca/research-programs/opportunities/current-and-upcoming/2015-bioinformatics-and-computational-biology-competition/
