Plant and Animal Genome XX (PAG2012) starts in San Diego on January 14. If you are attending PAG then you will have (at least) a half-dozen opportunities to learn more about Galaxy and how it is being used to support research. There will be workshops introducing Galaxy, and on deploying Galaxy in the cloud, and talks and posters on using Galaxy and several local Galaxy deployments. See the Galaxy @ PAG2012 page and the conference website for more information.
Hope to see you in San Diego,
