  5. BRAIN MOLECULAR ANATOMY PROJECT (BMAP) RESOURCE CENTER - NIH
    The National Institute of Mental Health (NIMH) plans to issue a Request for Proposals (RFP) No. NIMH-99-DB-0006 entitled "Brain Molecular Anatomy Project (BMAP) Resource Center". Issue date of the RFP will be on or about Wednesday, July 7, 1999 with receipt of proposals on or about Tuesday, August 24, 1999. It is anticipated that award will be made on or about November 30, 1999. The Brain Molecular Anatomy Project (BMAP) is an interdisciplinary project to establish state-of-the-art technologies and informatics systems to decipher the molecular anatomy of the mammalian brain. This multi-institute effort consists of several distinct components: 1) gene discovery, 2) gene expression analysis, and 3) the development of new technologies and resources that will facilitate rapid completion of projects supported under the first two components, as well as subsequent functional studies of the mammalian nervous system.
