Progress on USS bioinformatics

Yesterday my bioinformatics collaborator came by for a collaborational visit - she's in town for a few days. I've been quite frustrated by our slow sporadic email correspondence so it was great to discuss the work face-to-face.

We clarified a number of issues about the data - because she's generating it and I'm doing the writing about it, this is where all our problems lie. There's only one data set still to generate, a comparison of the peptides encoded by uptake sequences with their homologs in species that don't have uptake sequences. But there's still lots of writing to be done. I'm hoping she'll be able to come work with us for a couple of weeks early in the summer, so we can work on the writing together.
