[bioinfo] Field Trip to GO Meeting

As mentioned at the CS Bioinformatics meeting yesterday, we
will be going on our very first field trip next week. The
annual Gene Ontology Users meeting is being held in downtown
Chicago at Northwestern University. See the previous message
about data sources for preparation about GO. There will be
talks and demos on various classifying and searching tools.
I will give a talk on the plans for BeeSpace. It should be a
good bonding experience and a fun trip!
The logistics are as follows. We will be taking the train up
to Chicago to save time and energy, the destination is very
close to Union Station there. The City of New Orleans is a
big nice train, an American Experience if you haven't done
it. It leaves Champaign at 610am and arrives Chicago at 900,
which should leave us enough time to get by taxi to the
conference for the GO overview lecture at 930am. The train
back is at 8pm, which will leave us time for a leisurely
dinner or shopping in downtown Chicago. I will arrange for
taxis on both ends to go to/from the train stations.
Thus, we will meet at *** 5:30 am *** on Thursday October 14
in front of the Illini Student Union on Green Street. I will
arrange a taxi to get us to the train station so we can get
tickets and such. Please contact me if you cannot make this
or if you wish to go directly to the train station. You will
return at *** 10:30 pm *** the same day, to the Champaign
Transportation Terminal, which is on University in Champaign
next to the train bridge just past Urbana. There is plenty
of parking if you want to leave your car at the station.
The BeeSpace project will cover all costs. You need to bring
a photo id to get onto the train. The current list of train
reservations is as follows. Please send me corrections!
