Lucky guy.  I wish I were going ;-)

Is your Ph.D. in Computational Biology or Computer Science?

We'd like to have you help.  Don't worry about the time commitment.  We are
taking things very slowly, but we want many others to join so that we can get

Well, I'm a big GTK/GNOME advocate.  It's not entirely stable, as far as Linux
is concerned, but probably more stable than Windows.

Most definitely take a look at the mailing list archive, especially the more
recent e-mails: 


You will also want to be on the list, so send an e-mail to this address:
