Please note that this is not a mailing list open to all, only
infrequent messages from the bioinformatics.ca staff will be posted
here, and we believe that they will always be of high content value
for your mail box. (as you can see from this message!)

As always, please feel free to contact us (curators at bioinformatics.ca)
if you have any questions/interest in Canadian Bioinformatics
announcements, or have any concerns about anything on

Salutation a tous,
