What do you think? It sounds commercial, all right. I'm planning to put together a poster, but I'm more interested in what you bioinformaticians and computational biologists-in-training think of state-level biotech organizations such as KansasBio. Are they worth joining? Why or why not?
(Note, BTW, that it's KansasBio.org. They must have paid a pretty penny for the expo web site.)
