ISS Blog

The purpose of this blog is to provide perspectives on and information about symbiotic systems, to increase the awareness of these symbioses in the general public, and to engage readers in conversation and dialog.  We encourage the participation of the International Symbiosis Society's membership in crafting blog posts and/or suggesting topics to cover.  If you would like to become a contributor, or would like to nominate someone, please email the vice president for the website or the webmaster.

    Symbiosis Model Systems

    The Gordon and Betty Moore Foundation’s Symbiosis in Aquatic Systems Initiative is solicitating pre-applications to advance development of experimentally tractable model systems in aquatic symbiosis. Additionally, we are seeking information about needs in model systems development through a related survey. The deadline for submitting a pre-application for the Symbiosis Model Systems funding call is August 8, 2019 at 23:59 PDT. In addition to seeking researchers who currently work in these areas, we hope to identify scientists and engineers who have not previously worked on these topics and who would bring novel perspectives, methods and technologies to these important areas of science. Learn more about this funding opportunity, including FAQs and eligibility requirements: https://symbiosis.smapply.io.

     

    Moore­–Simons Project on the Origin of the Eukaryotic Cell

    The Gordon and Betty Moore Foundation’s Symbiosis in Aquatic Systems Initiative and the Simons Foundation Life Sciences Division are jointly soliciting proposals for research on the origin of the eukaryotic cell. The application portal will open on July 9, 2019 at 10:00 PDT. The deadline for submitting a proposal is September 30, 2019 at 23:59 PDTIn addition to seeking researchers who currently work in these areas, we hope to identify scientists and engineers who have not previously worked on these topics and who would bring novel perspectives, methods and technologies to these important areas of science. Learn more about this funding opportunity, including FAQs and eligibility requirements: https://symbiosis.smapply.io .

    The Gordon and Betty Moore Foundation recently announced a nine-year, $140M effort – Symbiosis in Aquatic Systems Initiative - focused on advancing knowledge of how symbiotic associations function and participate in ecology and evolution. The initiative is interested in symbioses where at least one partner is a microbe and where the symbiosis takes place in a marine or freshwater environment. The initiative currently has an open call for investigator awards with pre-applications due June 3, 2019. Two additional funding opportunities will be announced later in 2019. The first will focus on advancing experimental model systems in aquatic symbiosis. The second, in partnership with the Simons Foundation, will be centered on the origin of the eukaryotic cell.
