Office of the Director of National Intelligence, Intelligence Advanced Research Projects Activity (IARPA)
The award amount is unspecified. The BIC program is envisioned as a 5-year effort that is intended to begin approximately June 2014. Multiple awards are anticipated. 
IARPA would like to rapidly assess an individual's potential involvement in chemical or biological weapons (CBW) related activities. The goal of the Bio-Intelligence Chips (BIC) program is to discover omni-omic biomarkers from physiological fluids, such as blood, saliva, sweat, feces, or urine, which can be used to assay human exposure to agents and activities indicative of CBW production and handling.

DARPA-BAA-14-13
The DARPA Fold F(x) program objective is to develop processes enabling the rapid synthesis, screening, sequencing and scale-up of folded, non-natural, sequence-defined polymers with expanded functionality. The program will specifically address the development of non-natural affinity reagents that can bind and respond to a selected target, as well as catalytic systems that can either synthesize or degrade a desired target. DARPA anticipates that successful efforts will include (1) novel synthetic approaches that yield large libraries (>109 members) of non-natural sequence-defined polymers; (2) flexible screening strategies that enable the selection of high affinity/specificity binders and high activity/selectivity catalysts from the non-natural libraries; (3) demonstration that the screening approach can rapidly (<4 days) yield affinity reagents or catalysts against targets of interest to the DoD; and (4) demonstration of scalability and transferability to the DoD scientific community.
