It is nice to have somebody with such a background. Hopefully, that will prevent us from reinventing the wheel!!
Today's mailing list activity was quite crazy, too...

For Todd and Philipp:
I am a biologist (mostly at the bench), with a strong background in maths and physics (mostly in the classroom), and with ~ 1 year of work-related experience in Cocoa; but not much experience in bioinformatics per se. Follow the link in my signature to learn more about my main current project.


Help science go fast forward:
