Under the Ecology and Evolution of Infectious Diseases program, three U.S. agencies—the National Institutes of Health (NIH), National Science Foundation and U.S. Department of Agriculture—joined by U.K. and Israeli partners, will provide up to $12 million in 2015 for multidisciplinary research into infectious disease pathogens. The program will support research that uses genomics and other methods to understand how these pathogens are transmitted and the ways they evolve. Funding will be provided to nine award winners, both U.S.- and foreign-based, and proposals are sought in areas such as the interactions between pathogenic and non-pathogenic organisms and their hosts; how medical, agricultural or environmental practices affect pathogen emergence and transmission; host switching; and evolutionary dynamics in an ecological context. The deadline for submissions to NIH is November 19, 2014. See GenomeWeb, August 21, 2014.
