NBIS Bioinformatics Long-term Support call

Bioinformatics Long-term Support call is still open. See information from NBIS below.

Projects are selected based on their scientific quality. The deadline for the next round of applications to be reviewed by the national evaluation committee is
MONDAY MAY 3, 2021 (24:00)

We encourage research projects related to the current COVID-19 pandemic to consider applying in this evaluation round!

1. Please note that the applications should be complemented with a Data Sheet, so that power, replicates, matching of samples and potential batch effects can be properly evaluated.
2. Please note that the involvement in the data analysis is explicitly stated, so that at least 50% working time devoted to data analysis over 12 months by a scientist in the group of the applicant (or co-applicant) is required for support.

Applications are welcome for projects
* anywhere in Sweden
* any type of large-scale omics application
* any bioinformatics skills within the research group
Current and past projects are found here

The decision on what projects will be supported in this call is taken within two months from the application deadline. Typically, about 5-10 projects are granted support in each application round. In addition to the regular projects, we also aim to grant support to an additional 1-3 projects with a clear focus on data integration, which can be subject to more extensive method development support. Beside scientific merits, these projects preferably combine multiple omics technologies and include methodological challenges of general interest.

For further questions, please do not hesitate to get in touch with the Bioinformatics Long-term Support directly at bioinformatics_wabi [at] scilifelab [dot] se ()rel="noopener noreferrer" target="_blank". Also note that the NBIS platform provides bioinformatics support in several different tracks as outlined here:

We appreciate your help in spreading this information, and we are looking forward to your application!
