Ten new awards from the National Science Foundation (NSF) totaling $14 million will enable biologists to develop enhanced genomic tools that can reveal new insights into why organisms are structured the way they are and function the way they do.

Genomic tools allow researchers to understand more about the genetic makeup, or genomes, of organisms. They also have the potential to show how gene function affects organisms' phenotypes -- the physical and functional characteristics that ...
