We are happy to announce STOmics Grant Program:
Boost your spatial transcriptomics research to a new level!
BGI-Research invites all scientists of the STOC community and beyond to apply for our first-ever global STOmics Grant Program. Through this grant, you will experience the groundbreaking spatial transcriptomics technology Stereo-seq (SpaTial Enhanced REsolution Omics-Sequencing), which has recently driven multiple top publications in Cell, Developmental Cell, and Science by empowering scientists to perform spatially-resolved single-cell omics research with unprecedented resolution and scale.
Who is this grant program for?
The STOmics Grant Program is open to the global life sciences community, and open to all life sciences research interests. We want to learn about your scientific pursuits and how Stereo-seq may further empower you to conduct high-impact research, and we want to provide an opportunity to access Stereo-seq through the Grant Program.
What do I get if I win a grant award?
Winning a grant award from the STOmics Grant Program will give you free access to a generous supply of the STOmics Stereo-seq library preparation consumables, free access to ample MGI DNBSEQTM sequencing, and free access to basic bioinformatics analyses through the STOmics Stereo-seq Analysis Workflow (SAW) and the STOmics Stereopy advanced analysis toolkit. With a grant award, you will be empowered with Stereo-seq to produce the newest discoveries to be incorporated in your next high-impact publication.
Specifically, a grant award includes:
- 3 sets of STOmics Stereo-seq consumables including 12 Stereo-seq chips (1cm *1cm)
- DNBSEQ sequencing: 12 X 450 Gb of free sequencing services to be provided by qualified laboratories, for a total of up to 5.4 Tb of data
- STOmics SAW and Stereopy analysis: access to SAW and Stereopy to help generate bioinformatics analysis result for Stereo-seq experiments
What is the decision-making process for awarding the grants?
Applications will be carefully reviewed by the Grant scientific panel, which will make grant award decisions at its sole discretion. The applications will be evaluated in their entirety and key selection criteria includes (but not limited to): scientific impact, novelty, feasibility, applicability of Stereo-seq to the research.
How will I know if I win a grant award?
You will be notified of our decision through the email address you provided in your application materials on or before 31st December, 2022.
Note: The purpose of the Grant Program is to empower recipient researchers to perform spatial transcriptomics experiments for their own research. Nonetheless, it remains open to and available for discussions with recipients who would like to consider additional direct research collaboration beyond the scope of this Grant Program.
Through the SpatialTemporal Omics grant, you can experience the groundbreaking spatial transcriptomics technology, which is built on DNBSEQ and gives you unprecedented field-of-view, high throughput, and ultra-high resolution to your spatial transcriptomic research.
