Oops! Sticky mouse button. I meant to say:

UC Extension could use an introductory Linux course for biologists. I
estimate that less than 5% of biologists interested in informatics are
familiar with Linux, in spite of the fact that Linux is certainly the
best bioinformatics choice. O'Reilley's has recognized the recent
bioinformatics trend with a barrage of publications and conferences, but
grass roots exposure among biologists is still low. In January, I taught
the first UDC Extension introductory bioinformatics course. It was full
and had a significant wait list.

If anyone is interested in teaching an intro course, then please let me
know and I'll put you in contact with UC Extension.
