More studying

EURASIP Journal on Bioinformatics and Systems Biology is having a special issue on text mining for biology. My boss wants to publish something there, and asked if I and a colleague could work on that. I’ll probably focus on evaluation methods, since I’m not an expert in text mining or language processing.

And that’s where the problem comes in: I know almost nothing on text mining. Which means this will add up to the ever growing pile of papers and books I have to study, including but not limited to Python programming, microarray analysis and XML…

That’s one of the reasons I’m not posting much here: the other is that I’m devoting a lot of free time into completing S.T.E.A.L., since I just finished chapter 5.
