  • There is a new  Competitive Area—‘Integrative Research Investigating the Rules of Life Governing Interactions Between Genomes, Environment and Phenotypes’.
  • The eligibility criterion related to tenure in a position requiring a doctoral degree for Competitive Areas  ‘Broadening Participation of Groups Underrepresented in Biology’ and ‘Interdisciplinary Research Using Biological Collections’ has increased to 9 full time months. This criterion applies to the new Competitive Area as well.
