Introducing the USA Plant, Algae and Microbial Metabolomics Research Coordination Network (PAMM-NET)

Abstract

The USA National Science Foundation (NSF) recently funded a Research Coordination Network (RCN) grant (Award # 1340058) in September 2013. The primary goal of the RCN is the development of a USA Plant, Algae and Microbial Metabolomics Research Coordination Network (PAMM-NET) that will promote effective communication, enhance opportunities for collaboration, build community consensus, identify key challenges in metabolomics, and facilitate coordinated community empirical efforts to meet these challenges. Participation in the USA PAMM-NET is open to the public, and PAMM NET will interact with existing and future international metabolomics organizations and communities. The Specific Aims of the USA PAMM-NET are to: • Unify and facilitate greater collaboration between the awardees of the USA National Science Foundation and Japanese Science and Technology Agency (NSF-JST) Metabolomics for a Low Carbon Society Program • Build a collaborative and cooperative metabolomics research coordination network within the United States • Update plant, algae and microbial metabolomics reporting standards • Train and promote the next generation of metabolomics researchers • Correspond with and engage large informatics groups for the development of metabolomics tools and databases • Build a cooperative international network to pursue cooperative international funding opportunities that address the grand challenges of metabolomics
