Notification of Revised UK Medical Research Council policy for funding
----------------------------------------------------------------------
		Single Chromosome Workshops (SCWs)
		----------------------------------


The UK Medical Research Council (MRC) has recently reviewed its policy
for funding Single Chromosmoe Workshops, in the light of policies
adopted by other agencies. 

- From 1 March 1996, each application to run a SCW in the UK will be
peer reviewed in competition and only those workshops where a fully
justified scientific case is made and accepted will be supported. 


- Requests for funding SCWs should be submitted as fully costed
applications and should include a comprehensive list of potential
participants, plus the costs of subsistence. 


- Requests for travel funds to attend SCWs overseas will be considered
on a case-by-case basis.  Normally only one participant per group will
be considered, and they must be making a substantial contribution to the
generation of the map.  Retrospective travel claims will not be
considered.
