Quick update from Montreal

I’m sitting in a lovely little cafe, getting ready to attend the Computational & Systems biology retreat that Mike Brudno, Jerome Waldispuhl and Derek Ruths have so graciously organized. I’ll be speaking later in the afternoon about the marker project, discovering RAD52 foci and other mutant phenotypes. It’s the last scheduled talk of the day, which is a bit nerve wracking, but I’m confident that this audience will appreciate the story we’ve come up with. I’ll have succeeded if I can convey to them the big picture of this high-content screening + high-throughput microscopy approach, and the benefits to generating such a richly detailed data set from just one assay.
