The Department of Defense, Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency’s Biological Technologies Broad Agency Announcement supports the mission of the Biology Technology Office to foster, demonstrate, and transition breakthrough research, discoveries, and applications that integrate biology, engineering, computer science, mathematics, and the physical sciences. 

Through its Dear Colleague Letter: Models for Uncovering Rules and Unexpected Phenomena in Biological Systems, the National Science Foundation seeks to promote interdisciplinary research that enables novel mathematical and computational approaches that capture and explore the full range of mechanisms and biological variability needed to better understand complex and nonlinear behavior across multiple biological systems and scales.
