Happy Thanksgiving!

Happy Thanksgiving everyone... sadly I can't really appreciate it at its fullest (my family is kinda far), but my mom sent me some turkey she prepared via my aunt (I'm such a lucky guy!).

Been finishing my funds request all day (doctoral awards, CIHR and FRSQ). It's such a tedious process... at least this year HIV/AIDS is a CIHR priority, which really augment my chances of getting an award.

Google Adsense promptly fixed the ads problem on the main page following a short email... such a great service. And it's not like I'm a big advertiser!

Last, if you wanna know the state of the bioinformatics industry in Canada, a (kinda) recent article on strategis.ic.gc.ca does a good job describing our strengths / weaknesses as a country, major obstacles in company creation, etc. A really good read, much more 'realist' than the media used to publish in the 'bioinformatics bubble' 2-3 years ago.
