Dublin was a fantastic setting for the joint meeting of ISMB and ECCB – a full five days packed with talks, discussion and networking starting with the SIGS (BOSC, BIOVIS,  HitSeq and others), Satellite Meetings (CAMDA, 3DSig) and the main conference. While all of the science was excellent, a wonderful highlight was David Searls Special Presentation on James Joyce’s Ulysses: A Bioinformatics Perspective.
