I am interrupting my current blogging hiatus to point to a great initiative by Michael Barton. He is collecting some information regarding those working in the fields of bioinformatics / computational biology in this survey. This is a repeat from a similar analysis done in 2008 and I think is it is really worth getting a felling for how things have been changing. We can all benefit from the end result. So far, after 2 weeks, there have been close to 400 entries to the survey but the rate of new entries is slowing down. So, if you have not done so already, go and fill it out or bug some colleague to do so.
