My twitter wrap up of the Joint Genome Institute User Meeting #JGIUM

Off to another meeting so don't have time to write up details of the JGI User Meeting that just ended.  But I am posting my tweets and some related tweets here.  Also, apparently videos of the talks will be available soon. Will try to clean up the style of the posts ASAP but on the road ...
