Genomics-Enabled Plant Biology for Determination of Gene Function: The DOE SC program in Biological and Environmental Research (BER) hereby announces its interest in receiving applications focused on genomics-based research and technical innovation that will lead to transformative approaches to determine and validate gene function. This FOA solicits applications for systems biology research on plant genomes, gene systems, and molecular processes within the DOE-BER mission-space of research in bioenergy and the environment. Innovative combinations of 'omics (e.g., genomics, epigenomics, transcriptomics, proteomics, metabolomics, phenomics, etc.) and computational methodologies to deduce gene function that integrate multiple disciplines, including more traditional fields of plant biology, are strongly encouraged. DOE BER is interested in supporting research that will significantly move forward functional characterization and validation of the vast amounts of genomic information in plants studied by other BER-supported researchers. This FOA is intended to create a public benefit by increasing knowledge of our physical universe and widely disseminating that knowledge.

Applicants Eligible for this Grant
Unrestricted (i.e., open to any type of entity below), subject to any clarification in text field entitled "Additional Information on Eligibility"
Additional Information on Eligibility
All types of institutions are eligible to apply as the prime applicant (lead institution), except DOE/NNSA National Laboratories, other non-DOE Federal Agencies, Federally Funded Research and Development Center (FFRDC) Contractors, and nonprofit organizations described in section 501(c)(4) of the Internal Revenue Code of 1986 that engaged in lobbying activities after December 31, 1995.Applications involving the effort of multiple institutions are permitted, subject to the following requirements.• An application must be submitted by a lead institution that includes proposed subawards to any other institution, except other Federal agencies. (Other Federal agencies must submit their own application.)• DOE/NNSA National Laboratories, other Federal agencies, and other Federal agency FFRDCs are not eligible to apply as lead institutions but may be proposed as team members.• The involvement of all DOE/NNSA National Laboratories, other Federal agencies, and other Federal agency FFRDCs is limited to no more than 50% of the total costs requested in an application. Applications involving these types of institution must demonstrate clear scientific leadership from the submitting institution• A multi-institutional application must clearly designate a lead PI and institution, and must include a project management section in the lead PI's application that clearly describes the roles, proposed activities and deliverables for each collaborator, especially those at another institution.• The lead PI/institution must submit budgetary information for each of the funded Co-PIs on a supplement to the application cover page, as explained in Section IV. Part D.2.• All applications involving collaborators must include letters of agreement from each collaborator who would receive funding. These letters should specify the contributions the collaborators intend to make if the application is accepted and funded. • Applications for multi-investigator projects at multiple institutions also must present a well-defined management structure and coordination/communication plan for integrating collaborating investigators.Applications that do not include any of the bold-faced required elements listed here will be declined without review.Individual applicants or applicants that are not domestic organizations should be advised that:• Individual applicants are unlikely to possess the skills, abilities, and resources to successfully accomplish the objectives of this FOA. Individual applicants are encouraged to address this concern in their applications and to demonstrate how they will accomplish the objectives of this FOA.• Non-domestic applicants are advised that successful applications from non-domestic applicants include a detailed demonstration of how the applicant possesses skills, resources, and abilities that do not exist among potential domestic applicants.
