Informational EDGE Webinar: January 15, 2021, 2:00pm ET

The following is reposted from the IOS in Focus blog:

The Division of Integrative Organismal Systems (IOS), together with the Divisions of Biological Infrastructure (DBI), Environmental Biology (DEB), and Molecular and Cellular Biosciences (MCB) in the Directorate for Biological Sciences (BIO) at the National Science Foundation (NSF) and the National Human Genome Research Institute (NHGRI) of the National Institutes of Health (NIH) will host a webinar about the Enabling Discovery through GEnomics (EDGE) program, which recently released a new solicitation, (NSF 21-546). Following a brief presentation, program directors from all of the Divisions and agencies will be available to answer questions from participants.

Through the EDGE program, the NSF and the NIH support genomic research that addresses the mechanistic basis of complex traits in diverse organisms within the context (environmental, developmental, social, and/or genomic) in which they function. The program also continues to support the development of innovative tools, technologies, resources, and infrastructure that advance biological research focused on the identification of the causal mechanisms connecting genes and phenotypes. 

Information on how to join the webinar live can be found below. The slides and transcript of the webinar will be posted here on the IOS blog as well as the EDGE program website after the live event.

All are welcome to join and ask questions!
