Submit a Pilot Project Proposal
GP-write is proceeding in phases according to the initial roadmap (White Paper) to evaluate feasibility and value, similar to other large-scale genome projects such as HGP-read, Encyclopedia of DNA Elements (ENCODE), and the Synthetic Yeast Project (Sc2.0). Each of these earlier projects began with pilot projects that focused on a fraction of the genome, typically about 1%. For GP-write, only those projects that are deemed to provide valuable resources for advanced biomedical research and/or biotechnology development will be chosen.
The Scientific Executive Committee evaluates every pilot project submitted. Both approved projects and those currently under review are briefly described below.
Until the project is fully funded, GP-write is supporting the scientists submitting pilot projects with letters of recommendation. In the future, the goal is to financially support the pilot projects directly. There are two ways to apply for a pilot project: 1) Scientists can apply for funding through their university and GP-write will support the project with a Letter of Recommendation, or 2) scientists can partner with the Center of Excellence to apply for funding.
