In September the Bioconductor project relocated from Seattle, Washington
to Buffalo, New York and along with the geographical change came a few
staff changes.

A big thank you to Marc, Sonail and Paul for their contributions to the
project. They were instrumental in the design and implementation of
AnnotationHub (and annotations in general), tools for biological network
analysis, educational materials and many other areas. Thanks guys. You
will be missed.

Here in Buffalo we're pleased to welcome two new members, Jim Java and
Brian Long. Jim formerly worked as a biostatistician analyzing clinical
trial data and as a software engineer for several companies, with
projects ranging from point-of-sale (POS) software to embedded systems.
He has a Ph.D. in computer science (focused on natural language
processing), and master's degrees in biostatistics and English
literature. Brian has worked in software development with a focus on
relational database & NoSQL storage, UI/UX design, security and scale. 
Most recently, he's been part of a team to develop a
Platform-as-a-Service (similar to Google App Engine).  The platform
offering allows application developers to deploy components to on-demand
virtual infrastructure and supports a large number of programming
languages via Apache Thrift.

Please join us in welcoming Jim and Brian to the team!
