[Debian Med] Bioinformatics Sprint
Many of you are aware of the many constructive roles that computers
have in preclinical research. And in the post-genome area, free
access to those data goes closely together with free access to tools
to access those data. Debian, Ubuntu and Open Source technologies at
large are hence exceptionally well accepted and much used in the field.
To further help bioinformatics development - of our distribution
Debian and the scientific field with it - we have prepared for a
first dedicated workshop to be held on January 28th-31st in
Lübeck, Germany .
The meeting is funded by the recent Debian Sprint scheme  and
got a highly supportive additional grant by the NERC Envioronmental
Bioinformatics Centre . Many thanks to both. We already have
doubled the number of participants that we were originally aiming
at, with a nice mixture of Debian folks, upstream developers and new
contributors, grey hair and young graduate students. Please contact
us if you would like to join in; we should still find a seat for you.
