Running a Bioinformatics Core Facility

We have met annually since 2002 and have participated in conference calls since ISMB/ECCB 2007. Today's meeting will address best practices for running a bioinformatics core facility and will include short talks from people from different types of facilities - universities (public and private), research institutes, and industry. Ample time will be allotted for discussion.
