A report from the American Institute of Biological Sciences analyzes funding for biological research in President Obama’s budget request for fiscal year 2015. Most federal agencies would receive a small budget increase, but less than the rate of inflation, if the spending plan were enacted by Congress. The report provides detailed breakdowns of funding for the National Science Foundation, Smithsonian Institution, and other agencies.
