Important information for proposers

All proposals must be submitted in accordance with the requirements specified in this funding opportunity and in the NSF Proposal & Award Policies & Procedures Guide (PAPPG) that is in effect for the relevant due date to which the proposal is being submitted. It is the responsibility of the proposer to ensure that the proposal meets these requirements. Submitting a proposal prior to a specified deadline does not negate this requirement.


The Directorate for Biological Sciences (BIO) invites proposals for the construction and arraying of Bacterial Artificial Chromosome (BAC) libraries, from a broad phylogenetic spectrum of organisms, for the purpose of addressing fundamental questions in developmental, evolutionary and comparative biology.  Awards will be made to support the constructing and arraying of libraries, and the maintaining, archiving and disseminating of these libraries.  The organisms selected should be justified in terms of their utility in addressing specific scientific questions, their phylogenetic significance, and their tractability for further studies.
