Genomes (FAANG) Project
— A coordinated international action to accelerate Genome to Phenome
COST Call for Short-Term Scientific Missions (STSM)
COST Action CA15112 - Functional Annotation of Animal Genomes
- European network (FAANG - Europe)
We are looking to fund short - term scientific missions to develop
linkages and scientific collaborations between participating
institutions involved in the FAANG COST Action.
FAANG - Europe aims to establish a collaborative framework to enable
functional annotation of animal genomes as well as to develop a shared
research agenda to deliver improved functional annotation of animal
genomes. STSM should contribute to this aim as well as to train research
scientists and students in a) assays by sequencing, b) analysis of
functional sequence data, c) use of annotated genome sequences and
functional annotation data.
Important note: FAANG - Europe does not cover expenses related with
research experiments, only funds the mobility of researchers (accommodation
and travel expenses).
