I have switched jobs! still doing bioinformatics but for a service company providing next gen sequencing. Hence I think I shall move to a new blog address its here at http://kevin-gattaca.blogspot.com/ if its still relevant to you
installed gnome-do and avant-window-navigator
trying to figure compositing.. hmm good that metacity does compositing!
Wished I could have been there.. would love to c what tools are lacking for next gen seq technologies.
Had to use bash to run a few one off jobs or edit my bash_profile for enviroment settings..
these are useful links!
