Hi Brad, it was fun chatting about the genesis of the community. Ping me next time you know you will be in the bay area and we'll grab coffee. Also I would love to help your students / kids with their barcoding project, either materially with some low-cost reagents and thermocyclers, or as users of our alpha service. Drop me a line. And I'll see you around the conference!
I recently saw your message regarding the 4th National Conference on Genomics and Public Health to the HealthBOL group. Might I suggest you add a new event with this information? Unfortunately, sending broadcast messages to group members doesn't leave a tangible post or page for other members to reference-- but adding a notice to our Event section would.
Let me know if you have any questions, and thank you for considering my suggestion!
