I'm in NY at the Genome Informatics and GMOD meetings at Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory. I presented a little something detailing our experiences with community annotation.
Out in NY for the Biology of Genomes meeting and the annual Stein / Ware lab retreat.
I went into town tonight and was making some noise with my "A Side: We All Must Go / B Side: Life Is Precious" speech, words which seem sensible and even justified sprawled out on a smooth slab of redrock or watching the sun crash down over the Absorakas. Interrupted by an old friend wearing a bad wig on her head and the rigors of chemo on her face, the words seemed hollow, and at the same time, entirely vindicated.
Planning and coding session at CSHL. Managed to get all the database freezes converted to virtual machines, released the genetic map, and brought the new ontology viewer online. correction: there are still some issues to resolve with GBrowse handling of negative coordinates.
