National Institutes of Health: Expanding the Encyclopedia of DNA Elements in Human and Model Organisms
Page 2

The Expanding the Encyclopedia of DNA Elements in Human and Model Organisms project was basically established to expand the present catalog of functional elements, giving primary emphasis on human genome, secondary emphasis on mouse genome, and as well as a significantly reduced and more scientifically restricted effort on the fly and worm genomes.

The successful proposals that will be chosen by the NIH will then be asked to participate in a single research network which will be a consolidation of the existing ENCODE research consortia.

The National Institutes of Health has an allocated funding amounting to $23,000,000 to fund the The Expanding the Encyclopedia of DNA Elements in Human and Model Organisms project.

To know more about this funding opportunity, kindly visit Topgovernmentgrants.com or the Grants.gov website.

Institutions or organizations will be eligible to apply for the program as long as they are any of the following:

a) Higher Education Institutions, either public/state controlled or private

b) Profit and Nonprofit organizations such as small businesses

c) local governments with the US and its territories and possessions

d) independent school districts

e) Public Housing Authorities/Indian Housing Authorities

f) Native American Tribal Organizations (other than Federally recognized tribal governments)

g) Faith-based or Community-based Organizations

h) Regional Organizations

The Department of Health and Human Services, the primary agency funding the Expanding the Encyclopedia of DNA Elements in Human and Model Organisms project, is the country's primary agency responsible for protecting the health of all Americans through the provision of necessary human services to all, especially to those who are least capable of helping themselves.
