Great.  TULIP/Loci is slowly progressing.  We have 10 people on the list now,
plus we are collaborating with Harry Mangalam of the tacg project:


Much of our work lately has been innovating a new object management or workflow
system, which is the real meat of the project.  We have drafted the developer of
the Paos project, Carlos Maltzahn:


We hope TULIP/Loci will be a framework for connecting bioinformatics and

Loci and EMBOSS can collaborate on this, since our projects are complementary
not competing.

I invite you to subscribe to our mailing list.  Send an e-mail to
majordomo at busboy.sped.ukans.edu with "subscribe tulip-list" in the message body.

I'd like to know if I can subscribe to your "closed" emboss-dev mailing list...?
