A Database of Drosophila Genes & Genomes

FlyBase Survey 2016

FlyBase is writing the competitive renewal of FlyBase funding, which will be submitted to NIH in January. EXTENSIVE INPUT from the community of FlyBase users is invaluable in two ways. (1) It is a crucial source of input to help us determine our priorities for the next five year period. (2) The level of response is taken by our funders as a very important metric of how much the community cares about the continued survival of the FlyBase genomic and genetic database resource. In these days of competing demands for funds for research resources, the importance of this demonstration of community support for FlyBase by completing the survey cannot be overstated. For both these reasons, we ask you to respond to the survey no later than December 2nd and to encourage your colleagues to do so.
