... Genetic Basis of Complex Behaviors, PA-98-097, solicits applications for multidisciplinary, methodologically rigorous programs of neuroscience research that will use advanced techniques for statistical and molecular genetic analysis in human and animal populations to elucidate the genetic basis of complex behaviors. Provides up to 5 years support.

... There is a particular interest in studies using mathematical, computational, or theoretical approaches to understanding the fundamental biological mechanisms underlying behavior/molecular genetic analysis in human and animal populations to elucidate the genetic basis of complex behaviors. Provides up to 5 years support.

... Mathematical scientists seeking initial support should take the following steps: 1. Contact NIH staff members in charge of IRGs having potential overlap with the health-related component of the proposed research and determine their willingness to convene a Proposals submitted in response to normal program announcements are considered unsolicited.

... The research led to notable publications, including the article "Chaotic dynamics in an insect population," Science 275:389-391, which reports the observation of classical signs of chaos-period-doubling, bifurcations, and strange attractors in laboratory populations of the flour beetle, providing rare and compelling data in support of a controversial theory of nonlinear population dynamics.5 The Of lice of Multidisciplinary Activities (OMA) is another resource available to program officers seeking supplementary funding for new, cross-disciplinary proposals.

... Selection of applications for award will be done by the authorized Office of Science selecting official and will be based upon merit review, the importance and relevance of the proposed project to Office of Science missions, and fending availability. Tips Office of Science policy encourages a potential applicant to discuss his or her proposed research project with Of lice of Science program staff to clarify areas of research interest before submitting the applications.

... Most proposals are evaluated according to the following criteria: _~ ~- -D-~ Overall scientific, technical, and/or socioeconomic merits of the proposal; Potential naval relevance and contributions of the effort to the agency's specific mission; · The principal investigator's capabilities, related experience, facilities, techniques, or unique combinations of these, which are integral factors for achieving the proposal objectives; · The qualifications, capabilities, and experience of the proposed principal investigator, the team leader, and key personnel who are critical in achieving the proposal objectives; and · Realism of the proposed cost and availability of funds. For some programs, proposal submission is a two-step process: white papers are sought from prospective principal investigators.
