Advancing Theory in Biology: The Biological Sciences Directorate invites submission of proposals that advance our conceptual and theoretical understanding of the dynamics of living systems. The emergence of complex biological phenomena from dynamic interactions among less complex elements is a central theme in modern biology, and it permeates inquiries at all levels of biological organization from macromolecules to ecosystems. Such interactions are typically non-linear, distributed, and often span many levels of biological organization. These properties limit the understanding that can be gained by traditional experimental analyses. The program is designed to develop new conceptualizations and theoretical approaches to identify fundamental principles that traverse levels of biological complexity. Proposals may vary in size (up to $250,000 per year) and duration (up to three years), in the number of investigators involved, and in the nature of collaborations.
