IARPA to Hold Proposers Day For Biological Threat Risk Analysis Program - top government contractors - best government contracting event

Health research managementThe Intelligence Advanced Research Projects Activity plans to conduct a Proposers Day on June 28 in Washington to discuss a program that seeks to explore new methods and tools for analyzing biological threats based on DNA function.

IARPA said it will provide information on the requirements of the two-phase Functional Genomic and Computational Assessment of Threats project and will field questions from potential industry participants during the event.

The project’s first thrust will focus on identifying genomic approaches to biological threat analysis while the second thrust will center on the development of bioinformatic and computational tools for researchers to analyze data, communicate  threat potential and forecast structures and functions of unknown genes, IARPA noted.

The agency also seeks to build technology that can work to evaluate gene sequences for potential health hazards to humans or agricultural assets through the Fun GCAT initiative.
