Figure 1. EXPENDITURES & OVERHEAD RECOVERY. As shown in the figure, total expenditures (green bars) for the IGBB in 2018 were slightly more than $2M ($2,059,547, to be exact). With several new awards slated to start in FY19, it is anticipated that there will be an increase in expenditures during the next fiscal year. As shown by the blue line, indirect recovery has been relatively stable at about $122K over the last three fiscal years. As the new FY19 projects include overhead dollars, it is anticipated that indirect recovery will increase to about $150K in FY19. The highest points in indirect recovery (FY12 and FY14) were associated with successful NSF awards, and several NSF proposals are in progress by IGBB faculty and affiliates.
Figure 2. SALARIES + FRINGE AND EMPLOYEE NUMBER. The IGBB spent $921,105 on salary and fringe in FY18. Not including the director, 12.5 FTEs were employed as research associates or faculty. A new research associate and a new faculty member will join the IGBB in early FY19.
Figure 3. TOTAL AWARD VALUE AND AWARD NUMBER. FY18 saw the IGBB obtain six awards (purple line) with a net total worth of $1.2 M. This latter value is very close to the average for the seven fiscal years shown.
Figure 4. NET VALUE OF PAID INVOICES AND NUMBER OF INDIVIDUALS PURCHASING IGBB SERVICES. Over the last five years, the IGBB performed an average of $168K in services through the IGBB Service Center. Based on the limited data, there appears to be a trend of alternating high and low spending years. Of note, FY18 is the year with the greatest number of different paying customers (purple line). Invoices for FY19 already surpass the value of paid invoices for FY18 (data not shown) suggesting that FY19 will be a high spending year.
Figure 5. DEPARTMENTAL & INSTITUTIONAL AFFILIATIONS OF PAYING SERVICE CENTER USERS. FY18 had the most diverse paying user base of any fiscal year. In each of the fiscal years shown, the largest number of paying Service Center users are from the CVM Department of Basic Sciences (CVMb) except for FY18 in which there was a tie between CVMb and Animal & Dairy Sciences (ADS). Other acronyms used in the figure are as follows: ABE = Ag & Biological Engineering; BMEP = Biochemistry, Molecular Biology, Entomology & Plant Pathology; CHEM = Chemistry; CSE = Computer Science & Engineering; CVMc = CVM Clinical Sciences; CVMp = CVM Pathobiology & Population Medicine; EXT = Extension Service; FNH = Food Science, Nutrition & Health Promotion; IGBB = Institute for Genomics, Biocomputing & Biotechnology; PO = Poultry Science; PSS = Plant & Soil Sciences; SBP = Sustainable Bioproducts; WFA = Wildlife, Fisheries & Aquaculture; OMI = other Mississippi institutions; USDA = U.S. Department of Agriculture; DOD = Department of Defense; FCU = foreign colleges & universities.
Figure 6. PUBLICATIONS AND JOURNAL IMPACT INDEX. One-hundred peer-reviewed papers were published by IGBB faculty, research associates, and affiliates in FY18. This is the highest number of publications for any year for the IGBB (2011-present) and its predecessor, the Life Sciences & Biotechnology Institute (2003-2010). Interestingly, the mean SCOPUS journal impact index (2.96) in FY18 showed the lowest level of standard error (SE = 0.16) of any fiscal year.
