Rube Goldberg: Applying the UNIX Philosophy to Genomics
                                                      By David Dooling

UNIX is an operating system designed by engineers for engineers.  This 
talk will discuss how The Genome Center at Washington University in St. 
Louis is using the design philosophy of UNIX, small reusable components, 
to develop software and schedule work.  The talk will also discuss how 
the application of this philosophy has allowed The Genome Center to 
sequence and analyze the genomes of hundreds of cancer patients, the 
exomes of hundreds of diabetics, and the platypus.
