The iPlant Collaborative - a new (and seemingly cool) collaborative informatics project

Just found out (from Steve Rounsley) about what seems to be a cool collaborative computational project on plants - the Iplant Collaborative. From their site:
The iPlant Collaborative (iPC) is a distributed, cyberinfrastructure-centered, international community of plant and computing researchers enabling new conceptual advances through computational thinking, and addressing an evolving array of the most compelling grand challenges in the plant sciences and associated, cutting-edge research challenges in the computing sciences.
For more info got to their web site. Also - they are having their 1st conference which apparently will be webcasted. So apparently anyone can watch.
