NSF has posted an announcement for the new Plant Genome Research
Program on the web. The publication number is NSF98-30 and the URL is:

  http://www.nsf.gov/pubs/1998/nsf9830/nsf9830.htm

The first paragraph of this announcement says:

  The National Science Foundation (NSF) announces an opportunity for
  research in basic plant genomic science. The goals of the program are
  to support research on the structure, organization and function of
  plant genomes, and to accelerate the acquisition and utilization of
  new knowledge and innovative technologies that will aid in developing
  a more complete elucidation of basic biological processes in
  plants. An integrated understanding of plant genome structure and
  function is essential for the development of improved economically
  significant plants and of novel plant based products. This program
  represents the initial NSF component of an anticipated National Plant
  Genome Research Initiative.

The deadlines are: February 2, 1998 (Letter of Intent) April 6, 1998
(Full Proposal)
