I want to welcome Gary Van Domselaar to the team!  He's coming to us from the
BioTools project, and would like to help with Loci coordination and
documentation.  Well, he wrote an introduction below, and you've got to check
out the logos and GIF animations he's been working on.  Really neat stuff. 


My name is Gary Van Domselaar
(http://redpoll.pharmacy.ualberta.ca/~gvd). I'm interested in joining
the Open Lab to work on the Loci project.  I am currently doing Ph.D.
studies in pharmaceutical biotechnology and drug delivery at the
University of Alberta in Edmonton, Alberta, Canada.  I have been
involved in bioinformatics for about four years now. I wrote a good deal
of the documentation for PepTool (proteomics) and GeneTool (genomics)
for BioTools (http://www.biotools.com).  I think I may be able to
contribute to the Loci project as assistant coordinator [ie Jeff's
flunkie :-)], documentation author, web page development, and hopefully
some gui hacking, once I get up to speed on python and gtk.

For my first task I think I should probably flesh out the web site a
bit.  What would you like to see?  I personally like the GNOME web page
design (http://www.gnome.org), which is quite a bit like the loci pages
are now.  For starters I propose the following structure:

Main Page - Logo, blurb, and News.

User Info
    Introduction to Loci
    Tour of Loci

Developer Info
    Introduction (Joining, Background Info & Development Tools)
    Loci Architecture & Systems
    CVS instructions (CVS server?)
    Mailing List

This structure is based loosely on the gnome web pages.

I will be attending the American Peptide Symposium from June 26 - July
1, so I can get started when I get back.

I made a couple Loci logos last week when i was playing with the GIMP
and POVRAY.  You can check them out at
Give me your input and I will GIMP up an 'official' logo when I get back
