The NSF Biological Research Collections program provides support for biological collection enhancement, computerization of specimen-related data, research to develop better methods for specimen curation and collection management, and activities such as symposia and workshops to investigate support and management of biological collections. Biological collections supported include those housing natural history specimens and jointly curated collections such as frozen tissues and other physical samples, e.g. DNA libraries and digital images. Such collections provide the materials necessary for research in a broad area of biological sciences.

Because MU is limited to one application for this program, letters of intent must be submitted to the Office of Research,, no later than 5:00 pm Friday, May 5, 2006. Letters of intent should be limited to two pages summarizing 1) the proposed collection improvement, computerization, techniques research, or other activity; and 2) its impact on the use of the collection and its information resources by science and other sectors of society, long-term management, and public outreach capabilities of the collection.



MU Deadline: 5:00 p.m., Friday, May 5, 2006 (letter of intent)
