EMBOSS: C2 Future Funding
The current funding for EMBOSS is a Wellcome Trust research grant at the Sanger Centre which pays for 2 staff positions (Peter Rice and Ian Longden). This grant runs until October 2000.
We will apply for continued funding from the Wellcome Trust for 2 or 3 staff positions.
The EMBOSS grant has some money for travel and workshops, and funded one visitor from EMBnet Italy for a few weeks in July.
The UK EMBnet node at HGMP in Hinxton have 7 staff members contributing to EMBOSS. So far there is no extra funding for their work.
We would like to apply for EU funding for joint development efforts with other EMBnet nodes.
