â€œThe Wellcome Trust is an independent charity funding research to improve human and animal health. The Molecules, Genes and Cells stream supports research that aims to increase understanding of the fundamental biology and specialist functions of molecules, genes and cells; their interactions with one another; and their roles in normal function and disease processes. The stream supports basic molecular and cellular studies, as well as developmental biology, biochemistry, structural biology, genetics, bioinformatics, mathematical biology, and the interface between these areas and chemistry or physics.â€?
Mapping Bioinformatics Software, Genomic Applications, Gene Expression and Bioinformatics Software APIs from Canadaâ€™s Michael Smith Genome Sciences Centre. â€?The Genome Sciences Centre has a primary mandate to deploy resources and technology of a high-throughput genome mapping and DNA sequencing lab to decrypt the genetic code, specifically to advance cancer research, diagnosis and treatment.â€?
“Funding Health Research
The Canadian Institutes of Health Research (CIHR) is the major federal agency responsible for funding health research in Canada. This section will be of interest to researchers, research coordinators and others who seek research funding or manage CIHR research grants.â€?
â€?The Biotechnology and Biological Sciences Research Council (BBSRC) is the UKâ€™s principal funder of basic and strategic biological research. To deliver its mission, BBSRC supports research and research training in universities and research centres throughout the UK, including BBSRC -sponsored institutes; and promotes knowledge transfer from research to applications in business, industry and policy, and public engagement in the biosciences.â€?
Centers of Excellence in Genomic Science
â€œThe Human Genome Project (HGP) has produced a wealth of genomic data. The next challenge is to discover and analyze the vast amount of biological information contained within it. The Centers of Excellence in Genomic Science (CEGS) program supports the formation of multi-investigator, interdisciplinary research teams to develop novel and innovative genomic research projects, using the data sets and technologies developed by the HGP.â€?
â€œCenters of Excellence in Genomic Science Awarded Grants Information – The National Human Genome Research Institute (NHGRI) plans to establish a total of about 10 CEGS, at a rate of three to four grants per year during a three-year period.â€?
The EST Machine from the Telethon Institute of Genetics and Medicine, a â€œdirectory of links to selected bioinformatic resources for Expressed Sequence Tags analysis.â€?
Funding for researchers from EPSRC, the Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council.
â€œWe fund research in several different ways. You can apply at any time for responsive mode funding. We also have other funding opportunities for particular activities, and calls for proposals in specific research areas. All current calls for proposals are available on the website and you can register for a weekly email of new calls for proposals.â€?
Sequence Analysis Tools from the OUEST-genopoleÂ® bioinformatics center, which â€œaims at proposing innovative software in Bioinformatics. You will find here a very complete set of tools in bioinformatics, public databanks updated on a daily basis, and a range of links to seminars, training courses…â€?
Computational gene finding, genome assembly and large-scale genome alignment and other sequence analysis tools from CBCB. â€œThe Center for Bioinformatics and Computational Biology is a joint effort between the College of Life Sciences and the College of Mathematical, Computer, and Physical Sciences, and is organized as a center within the University of Maryland Institute for Advanced Computer Studies (UMIACS).
Affiliated departments include Biology, Cell Biology and Molecular Genetics, Chemistry and Biochemistry, Computer Science, Entomology, Mathematics and Smith School of Business.â€?
â€œThe Special Programme for Research and Training in Tropical Diseases (TDR) is an independent global programme of scientific collaboration. Established in 1975 and co-sponsored by the United Nations Children’s Fund (UNICEF), the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP), the World Bank and the World Health Organization (WHO), it aims to help coordinate, support and influence global efforts to combat a portfolio of major diseases of the poor and disadvantaged.â€?
