Bioinformatics around the globe

Did you ever wanted to have a global impression of the field of bioinformatics ? What types of tools they used, or how different is the work in academia versus industry ? Michael Barton from Bioinformatics Zen created a survey that will be running for the next month (until the 1st of August) that tries to address some of these questions. The more people complete the survey, the more informative the picture will be. The survey is anonymous and all information will be made available for those interested in analyzing it.
If you have a blog you can re-post it on your blog (see intructions here) or send a link to any of these blog pages that host the survey to other bioinformatic/computational biology researchers.
