NIH invites applications for computational and integrative data analysis tools for the Library of Integrated Network-Based Cellular Signatures (LINCS) program.
This initiative is funded through the NIH Common Fund, which supports cross-cutting programs that are expected to have exceptionally high impact. All Common Fund initiatives encourage investigators to develop bold, innovative, and often risky approaches to address problems that may seem intractable or to seize new opportunities that offer the potential for rapid progress.
The LINCS program supports high-throughput data collection and integrative computational analysis of informative molecular activity and cellular feature signatures. The major aim of the program is to build and provide a long-lasting resource that generates validated responses of different cell types to a broad array of cellular perturbations. This initiative intends to improve and add to the suite of computational tools and approaches available for researchers using LINCS, with a goal of making the tools and approaches widely available for use by the research community.
