 Hi people,

 If there is anyone interested in microarray data and all that good stuff
you might want to check this out:

 There is a jamboree planned in Toronto on September 14-19 where people 
from academia (UC Berkeley, EBI) and industry (Affymetrix, Rosetta, etc.) 
will gather to implement open source tools to work with the new MAGE-ML
(an XML format for microarray data that is set to be the successor of
various existing standards, I forget their names) that is being released 
by the Object Management Group some time soon.

 The plan is to develop an API for the MAGE object model in several 
different languages. Currently there are people signed up to work on
C/C++, Perl and CORBA implementations - *but no Python*. 

 If any of you biopythoneers are interested in doing a Python 
implementation there you should sign up on the microarray-format 
mailing list at www.mged.org, and then notify the 
organizer (Paul Spellman) ASAP.
