I am in Ljubljana, Slovenia at the moment, attending the BAGECO – BActerial Genetics and ECOlogy – meeting. Ljubljana is a small, pretty city and the weather is amazing at the moment. The conference is fun: just a single session but with some big name speakers. The venue is in the centre of town in a grand hotel and everything is really well organized (good food and plenty of coffee). I have plugged the ODoSE webserver with some success, as a couple of people have already vowed to use it on their new datasets. This meeting was also a good opportunity to meet up with organizer Professor Ines Mandic-Mulec, who I will co-supervise an undergraduate student with in Cornwall (more about that project in a later post). First a week of holiday though!
