EMERALD (Empowering the Microarray-Based European Research Area to Take 
a Lead in Development and Exploitation) is a project to establish and 
disseminate quality metrics (QC), microarray standards and best 
laboratory practices (QA) throughout the European microarray community 

The EMERALD consortium would like to announce three travel grants for 
PhD students who are citizens of the European Union member states to 
help them to participate in the Annual Microarray Gene Expression Data 
Society meeting (http://mgedmeeting.org/) Sept 3rd-5th 2007, Brisbane, 
Australia. Each scholarship will pay up to Euro 1500 towards travel 
expenses. Eligible candidates must be a presenting first author on an 
abstract for poster or oral presentation and must be a student at the 
time of registering for the conference. Scholarships are intended for 
students who otherwise could not afford to attend after exclusion of all 
other possible institutional/group assistance schemes. The EMERALD 
Coordination Action aims at developing and implementing quality metrics 
and microarray data
quality standards. Abstracts related to microarray data quality and 
standards will be given preference.
