Do you support pilot projects with Seed Grants?

Seed Grants

Yes, the Genome Center invites proposals for pilot projects that merit support by the Genome Center. These seed grants award up to $2,000 to spend at any of the Cores; it is also possible to apply for grants at multiple Cores to UC Davis labs.  The Genome Center seed grants are available all year round. They are meant to either introduce UC Davis labs to high-throughput sequencing or genotyping methods, or to help establish new methods.  They will fund up to $2000 per project.  Equivalent pilot grants are also available through the Bioinformatics core. Please see: http://dnatech.genomecenter.ucdavis.edu/2014/07/31/2015-genome-center-cores-pilot-grant-program/ . A seed grant application should be about one page long and include an outline of the project including the planned data analysis, a sentence on how the project would fit in with the goals of the GC seed grants,  a listing of the specific services to be provided by our Core, as well as a budget (including an account number in case the costs exceed the grant amount).
