Exploring science is typically characterized by a lot of puzzles, frustrations or even failures. This weblog is mainly intended to record my working, thinking and knowledge acquisitions. I expect that some reflection would refresh my mind from time to time, and motivate me to move further, and hopefully give me a better view about even changing the landscape of bioinformatics.
You are welcome to leave some comments, good or bad, but hopefully something constructive. Enjoy your surfing!

Canadian National Proteomics Network
Lately, I was invited to join Canadian National Proteomics Network. CNPN is a not-for-profit federally incorporated organization created to provide a cooperative mechanism for building the proteomics research infrastructure in Canada to further a better understanding of proteomics in the Canadian life sciences community and to sponsor scientific conferences, seminars and forums to create a national focus for scientific collaboration and education.
It is unclear how many members it has now, but I would guess it is a small group, mainly consists of students, postodocs and professors. Anyway, I hope it can really grow and create more communications, collaborations, and career opportunities for bioinformatics professionals. It is a crucial especially for a less populated country like Canada.
