COS Funding Opportunities, COS Scholar Universe, COS Expertise
Community of Science (COS)
Description

COS Pivot is a directory of researchers and research funding opportunities that combines two comprehensive, editorially maintained databases:  the COS Funding Opportunities database of over 400,000 funding opportunities worth an estimated $33 billion, and the COS Scholar Universe database of 3 million profiles of scholars worldwide.  Its proprietary algorithm compiles pre-populated researcher profiles unique to an organization (such as University of Michigan) and matches them to revelant current funding opportunities.  This allows U-M users to search for a funding opportunity and instantly view matching faculty from inside or outside U-M.  Conversely, a search for a given scholar will link to matching funding opportunities.

Note:  Access to personalized features requires personal registration and login.  COS Pivot replaces the former COS Expertise service.

Current Protocols in Nucleic Acid Chemistry

Description
Published in association with International Society for Nucleosides, Nucleotides & Nucleic Acids (IS3NA), Current Protocols in Nucleic Acid Chemistry is equally valuable for biotech, pharmaceutical, and academic labs. It is the resource for designing and running successful research projects in the rapidly growing and changing field of nucleic acid, nucleotide, and nucleoside research. CPNAC draws from a unique set of chemistries to synthesize modified nucleic acids, which can be used in structure-function studies, as therapeutic agents, and as tools for molecular biology and covers basic to advanced techniques for the synthesis, modification, purification, analysis, and utilization of nucleic acids, nucleotides, and nucleosides.
