Science!

proposal budget

Hey all,
I'm currently trying to finish up a small grant proposal by Wednesday morning. I'm applying for money to take my project in a totally new direction (moving from field ecology to genetics). I have no background in genetics, although I've done enough background work and talking to my new second advisor about what I'm going to do.
So, the part I'm struggling with is the budget. Since I haven't actually done any of the procedures, I'm not really sure what I'm going to need or what things cost. I don't need equipment, just consumable supplies.
Any advice on where to go to get an idea of a good budget for a small genetics project? My advisor is out of town, otherwise I'd ask him...

Thanks!
