Bethesda, MD FASEB MARC (Minority Access to Research Careers) Program has announced the travel award recipients for the 19th Annual International Conference on Intelligent Systems for Molecular Biology (ISMB) Conference and the 10th European Conference on Computational Biology (ECCB), an official conference of the International Society for Computational Biology (ISCB) in Vienna, Austria from July 15-19, 2011. These awards are meant to promote the entry of underrepresented minority students, postdoctorates and scientists into the mainstream of the basic science community and to encourage the participation of young scientists at the 2011 ISMB/ECCB Conference.
