Key Dates.
Release/Posted Date: July 24, 2007
Opening Date: July 25, 2007 (Earliest date an application may be submitted to Grants.gov)
Expiration Date: September 8, 2010

Purpose.
This funding opportunity announcement (FOA) solicits research to expand the application of genetic epidemiologic methods to studies of substance and alcohol use disorders (SUDs/AUD, drug and alcohol abuse and dependence) by applying genetic epidemiologic approaches to advance our understanding of developmental trajectories of SUD/AUD, differentiate genetic and environmental factors in the development and maintenance of SUD/AUD, broaden and refine phenotypic definitions of SUDs/AUD, guide the translation of etiologic findings to treatment, prevention, gene-finding and molecular studies, and meet the methodologic challenges of the field.

Genomes 2008

Genomes 2008
Functional Genomics of Microorganisms

April 8-11, 2008
Institut Pasteur, Paris, France

Genomes 2008 is of the latest in a series of meetings including Genomes 2000 (Institut Pasteur, Paris), Genomes 2004 (Hinxton, Cambridge, UK), Microbial Genomes 2007 (Hinxton, Cambridge, UK), and the ASM-TIGR Microbial Genome Conferences (USA).

The emphasis of the meeting will be comparative analyses of pathogenic and environmental microbes, functional genomics, computational genomics and systems biology in the light of the new technological developments. Genomics has also dramatically changed studies concerning the interaction of microorganism s with their environment or, for pathogens, symbionts or commensals, their host. The newest results in this field will also be discussed.
