About The CSP Annual Call (CLOSED)
The JGI’s Community Science Program (CSP) Annual Call is focused on large-scale genomic science projects that address questions of relevance to DOE Biological and Environmental Research (BER) missions in sustainable biofuel and bioproducts production, global carbon cycling, and biogeochemistry. While applications will be accepted that address any aspect of these mission areas, priority for this call will be given to projects that address the specific areas of special emphasis that are listed in the call, and exploit the diversity of JGI technical and analytical capabilities.
For the CSP annual call, a Letter of Intent (LOI) is required to submit a proposal to the JGI. The letter of intent must be submitted using our web-based form. Submitters whose LOIs/proposals are approved will receive further instructions via email. Human or animal disease-related work will NOT be considered under this Program. Plant pathogens will only be considered if of relevance to bioenergy-related crops or plants. All proposals will be externally peer-reviewed for scientific merit, DOE relevance, proposed data usage by the applicant/community, and track record of the applicant. Proposers are encouraged to review the JGI’s sample requirements; samples that are not available in a timely manner, or are of insufficient quality or quantity, will delay or potentially defer approval for sequencing.

For general questions, please contact Christa Pennacchio, Project Management Office. For questions about the appropriateness of projects or experimental design, please contact Tanja Woyke, Deputy for User Programs. Technical and Scientific Leads will also be available to answer any questions prior to proposal submission.
