Genomics:GTL Facility Financial Assistance Opportunity Announcement
Published: January 16, 2006
Posted: January 27, 2006

The Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA) for the Genomics:GTL Facility for the Production and Characterization of Proteins and Molecular Tags (i.e., GTL 1) was issued on Grants.Gov on Monday, January 9, 2006. The solicitation is open to all DOE/NNSA Federally Funded Research and Development Centers, as well as universities and not-for profit corporations. This FOA requests that the scientific community submit applications for the development of a scientific user facility for the Production and Characterization of Proteins and Molecular Tags that involves the design, construction (construction is used generically here and could include new construction, renovation of existing space, leasing space or other options proposed by the applicants), and research and development related to the design, configuration, and operation of the facility that will serve as a major scientific user facility for the scientific community including the Genomics:GTL program. Letters of Intent for the FOA are due on January 31, 2006. A conference call with potential applicants is scheduled for February 22, 2006, and all applications are due on April 11, 2006.
