Bioinformatics and biological resources fund – bbsrc


The 2016 BBR call includes a highlight for proposals relevant to the Global Challenges Research Fund (GCRF, see below and specific guidance). Usd to hkd exchange rate history However, applications are welcome in all areas of our remit.

For applicants planning to submit under the GCRF highlight it is mandatory to submit an Expression of Interest (EoI) first.

1 usd to mxn Please see the specific guidance for more details about the highlight (see application downloads below).

The BBR Fund was established to tackle a strategic need to provide ‘proper support for resources such as databases, genetic resources and culture collections which require long term maintenance and curation’.

Our Strategic Plan (see related links) has a key priority to ‘provide bioinformatics and biological resources required by the UK research community to stay internationally competitive’ and the Delivery Plan 2016-20 (see related links) states that we will take a strategic approach to investment in research capability, to ensure that the UK bioscience community has access to the infrastructure, facilities and resources necessary to carry out ground-breaking research.

The current call is the tenth round of BBR funding; grants awarded under previous calls can be viewed using our Portfolio Analyser (see ‘Search awarded grants’ in related links). How to use binary code Global Challenges Research Fund (GCRF)

GCRF is a new 5-year £1.5Bn resource funding stream, announced as part of the 2015 spending review, to ensure that UK research takes a leading role in addressing the problems faced by developing countries. Usd to thb exchange rate The GCRF will deploy the UK’s world-class research capability to address the challenges faced by the developing world. Dollar to rupee exchange rate today The funding is protected science spend and the Research Councils are primary delivery partners. Computer binary code The GCRF is also part of the UK Government’s pledge to allocate 0.7% of Gross National Income to Official Development Assistance, promoting the welfare and economic development of developing countries. Aud conversion to usd Official Development Assistance

All research funded through the GCRF stream will form part of the UK’s Official Development Assistance (ODA). Mxn to usd exchange rate Therefore, research proposals submitted under the GCRF highlight should clearly demonstrate that the primary purpose is to promote the economic development and welfare of countries on the DAC list of ODA recipients as its main objective (see external links). Biliary duct system Please see FAQs and the specific GCRF guidance for more information (see application downloads below).

Proposals that do not clearly articulate how the proposed research will address near-term or long-term benefits to the welfare or prosperity of countries on the DAC list will still be eligible for the BBR call, but will lose the highlight classification. Aud to usd chart Guidance on ODA definitions and interpretation is available in the OECD factsheet ‘Is it ODA?’ (see external links). The millionaire tv show Scope

• For bioinformatics resources (e.g. Hex converter to text databases, software suites), there is a need to enable the management, analysis and sharing of large and/or complex datasets. Usa today sports There is a continuing need for novel software solutions that can enable deeper analysis of datasets and facilitate greater understanding of biological systems

• For biological resources, access to materials that underpin cutting edge bioscience research is required e.g. Binary star culture and germplasm collections, mutant lines, DNA samples, clones, genetic libraries etc

• Resources may already exist but are not readily available (e.g. Aud usd arising from work carried out during a project grant rather than being funded as a community resource)

GCRF components that provide high quality, accessible, community resources that meet key ODA needs and represent an integral part of either an existing BBR grant, or a BBR grant that is submitted as part of the current call, will be considered together with the main BBR award and are subject to the normal BBR financial limits, i.e. Dow futures marketwatch are available for up to 5 years with the total of submitted BBR grant and GCRF component not exceeding £2M FEC.

The BBR Fund has a key role to play in implementing our data sharing policy (see related links) and we anticipate continuing demand for community data sharing infrastructures, responding to the opportunity generated by next generation sequencing and other high-throughput technologies.

Resource provision has a strong international dimension and we view the BBR Fund as a contribution to the global infrastructure required in order to underpin modern bioscience research.

Please contact us if you are unsure whether your application fits within the scope of the call (see contacts below). Usd to inr conversion calculator Applicants may wish to consider how resources with a global reach can contribute to development in countries currently on the ODA DAC list. Commodity meaning Further, they may wish to consider how existing resources can be extended to those countries, or where access has been limited, how resources or services can be improved. Today’s conversion rate usd to inr Funding is available for direct extensions to existing resources (including those already in receipt of BBR funding) or specific projects related to improving or extending access.

Depending on the chosen option the GCRF relevance needs to be addressed accordingly and the submission of an Expression of Interest might be required. Chicken stock meaning in urdu Please see the GCRF specific guidance for more information (see application downloads below).

Resources often thrive best when they are alongside and/or closely informed by research groups that actively use them. Usd eur While the focus of this fund is on resource provision, an element of research can be included. Euro to pound exchange rate graph However, this should be focused on technological development of the resource features so they continue to meet user need. Pound euro forecast 2016 Renewals

Renewals for awards previously supported under the BBR Fund are permitted under the current call. Gold price forecast 2020 These applications should continue to maintain and develop the resource and will be assessed in competition with all other proposals submitted to the call. Usd football Exclusions

• Continued maintenance of resources that already have suitable provision (e.g. Us market futures today funded from BBSRC institute core support, other Research Councils, Government Departments, and/or European funding streams)

For the categories of eligible organisations see our grants guide, section 2 (see downloads) and for a list of IROs see the RCUK eligibility guidance (see external links).

In 2016, the GCRF highlight of the BBR Fund will operate through a two-stage application and assessment process (EoI and full proposals). Dollar to pound exchange rate history For all other proposals there will be a single-stage assessment. Usd cad exchange rate It is mandatory for applicants planning to submit under the GCRF highlight to submit an EoI using the form available in the download section.

EoIs will be assessed internally to determine fit to scope and BBSRC remit as well as ODA alignment. Marketing in the future EoIs must be submitted by email to by 23 August 2016, 4pm.

Full applications will be sent to external peer reviewers prior to assessment by an expert Panel. Used book stores phoenix Applications must be submitted using Je-S by 2 November 2016, 4pm.
