We at GigaScience always appreciate good press, and on top of the welcome coverage on blogs (e.g. this in Annals of Botany) and twitter, we are pleased with the profile of the journal in this months Bio-IT world (especially coming on top of the coverage of our database in the previous issue). The article is a nice introduction to the editors, editorial policies, and hopes for the journal, and is useful reading for those who’d like to know a bit more on top of what is already featured in GigaBlog and our authors instructions. We are very pleased with the detailed coverage, although we are not sure this can top our recent mention in the prestigious Annals of Improbable Research.
After our busy summer attending conferences and chasing down papers, GigaScience is not slowing down and is still on the road. Today we are currently at the NGS Asia congress in Singapore (follow #ngsasia on twitter for updates) and next week we will be gathering with the human genetics community at their annual ASHG/ICHG congress in Montreal (we’ll be tweeting using #ICHG2011). Those attending can get hold of us via the BMC and BGI booths (1122 and 1322), so please come and say hello.
