Sorry for the slightly off-topic message, but I think there are plenty of
overlapping interests between bioperl and bioconductor.  I wanted to
announce the upcoming Bioconductor 2010 conference.  Besides the email
below, if there are questions that I can answer, let me know.



BioC 2010 is coming up quickly, and we urge you to sign up today! We're
meeting July 29-30 (Developer Day July 28) in Seattle. There is a
terrific line-up of speakers (see below) and the work shops are being
finalized (see https://secure.bioconductor.org/BioC2010/labs.php for a
preliminary list, subject to change).

Also, we have introduced a special 'Flow Cytometery' track. This
provides access to the Friday afternoon practicals sessions. These
sessions will include, among others, practicals relevant to cytometry.

Finally, the deadline for scholarship applications is June 15, just a
few days away!
