3

$500,000

$114,000

3

$385,000

$2,811,758

Reduced funding is recommended because the investigators have published work using a GC with sulfur detection, so the need for this equipment did not seem justified, as they presumably have access to such equipment. Furthermore, the materials and technical support budgets appear excessive to conduct the described research, so the committee recommended funding for these areas be reduced (25% and 33% respectively).

Over half of the first year budget is devoted to a subcontract for research to be performed in Brazil, but the justification for the Brazilian budget is incomplete; budget recommendation is reduced with the expectation of partial or complete restoration should specific and reasonable justification be provided.

The first year budget seems to be excessive for the activities proposed; interspecific functionality of R genes is uncommon, so only one year of funding is recommended for proof of concept.
