Sounds useful! May I point out that there is a similar effort already
going on with Cloud BioLinux . Maybe Tim has something more to say
about that? In the paper it is stated that they are aiming to improve
their collaboration with the Deb Med community.
Disclaimer: I do not have first-hand experience with Cloud BioLinux, I
just handed out some Cloud Computing papers for student seminar
assignments and that was one of them...
