    Keep BEN alive petition
    Submitted by Erik Bongcam-Rudloff; posted on Wednesday, July 22, 2009


    The survival of the Belgian node of EMBNet (BEN, the Belgian bioinformatics server park) is at stake. If nothing is done, BEN will stop working towards the end of September 2009. The computers are still running, but nothing has been updated, because since May 1st BEN has been essentially unmanned.

    Fred R. Opperdoes, Secretary of the Belgian Society of Biochemistry and Molecular Biology has created an on-line petition, "Keep BEN alive," where you can support their initiative to try and reverse the unfortunate decision by the Belgian Science Policy makers to stop the funding of BEN.

    Please visit[...]nben/ to sign this petition.

    Thank you for your support!!

    P.S. Bioinformatics needs are increasing, and a few central entities will not cope with the avalanche of sequence data created by the new generation of sequencing techniques. The needs of distributed bioinformatics support centres are increasing, not decreasing. Today BEN, tomorrow you!
