OK – so in the era of H1N1 it is definitely yucky to have REAL meetings with people, but this “Bay Area Bioinformatics” meetup group seems like a good idea. They have a meetup in Berkeley 11/14 at Cafe Strada. Folks can sign up here: BayBIFX (El Cerrito, CA) – Meetup.com
Seems like they are focused on East Bay but want to get Davis, and other people involved …

I am an evolutionary biologist and a Professor at U. C. Davis. (see my lab site here). My research focuses on the origin of novelty (how new processes and functions originate). To study this I focus on sequencing and analyzing genomes of organisms, especially microbes and using phylogenomic analysis

Interesting juxtaposition of ideas there. Hoping to thin out the crowd?
nope just writing what I thought — my brain w/o enough coffee
Jonathan raises a good point. I'll be sure to bring some hand sanitizer. But of course, you have to take some risks in life. All in the name of science, I'm sure.
