Our ISMB 2008 conference report

In a nutshell: we went to ISMB 2008, had a great time and live-blogged the meeting using this FriendFeed room. The nice people at ISCB were so impressed that they asked us to write up a report.

So here it is. FriendFeed life scientists might recognise some (or all) of the author names.

Saunders, N., Beltrão, P., Jensen, LJ, Jurczak, D., Krause, R., Kuhn, M. and Wu, S. (2009).

This is a highlight of my career to date. Thanks are due: to the authors (especially Roland who got it all started); to everyone who contributed at the ISMB 2008 room; and to BJ Morrison and Phil Bourne for their support in making this happen.
