NINDS invites grant applications for genetic and genomic analysis of Xenopus. This announcement is made together with 8 other NIH components and is supported by 3 funding mechanisms: R01, R03, and R21.
For the past few years, the international research community has been generating genetic and genomic data and reagents for the model systems, X. tropicalis and X. laevis. These diverse data and reagents are being generated by investigators from several different research communities (including geneticists, gene sequencers, gene mappers, cell biologists, developmental biologists, and bioinformatics experts) and can now be used to enhance Xenopus' role as a model system. The purpose of this announcement is to encourage investigators to combine these data, reagents, and methodologies to find the genetic basis of cell biological events, including embryonic development and organogenesis.
