Funding Opportunities from the ISB
The ISB offers microgrants to sponsor local and regional short meetings of ISB members to foster synergy of their work efforts.
To promote collaboration and exchange between biocuration groups ISB offers fellowships. The fellowship will fund the visit of a biocurator to another laboratory or organization with long experience in biocuration.
Biocuration Training Materials Available Online
If you have materials you’d like to contribute and make publicly available, please let us know.
