EOS ACTIVITIES To champion ‘Omics in NERC Fellowships: Prompt Bioinformatics as a professional niche Partnerships (RC, Industry, Government(s)) Conferences: iEOS14 Visioning workshops: STFC/NERC Training Infrastructure: BIG DATA/EOS Cloud
Fellowships – The Science Konrad Lohse, University of Edinburgh. Using genomes to dissect the speciation process - a comparative approach. Umer Ijaz, University of Glasgow. Understanding microbial communities through in situ environmental 'omic data synthesis. Logan Kistler, University of Warwick. An archaeogenomic approach to maize evolution, adaptation, and biodiversity in North America.

2014 Fellowship Call Focus of Partnerships “In this final round of IRFs in the priority area of bioinformatics we are strongly encouraging prospective fellows whose projects align with strategic partners. Current potential project areas and partnerships agreed with the programme at the time of this Announcement of opportunity include: Sustainable intensification in agriculture (BBSRC) Development of novel informatic tools and resources to support Biosciences (BBSRC) Predictive and comparative (eco)toxicogenomics (AstraZeneca) Developing and validating an informatics/ systems biology framework to quantify significant mechanisms of AMR gene flow between environmentally significant and clinically important bacteria that result in adverse clinical outcomes (AstraZeneca) Additional partnerships may be negotiated by the programme prior to the deadline date. Please consult the EOS fellowship webpage (http://environmentalomics.org/fellowships/) for up-to-date information.http://environmentalomics.org/fellowships/
