Dear R user,

The Division of Pathway Medicine and Edinburgh Parallel Computing Centre
at the University of Edinburgh are currently working on a joint project 
to design a framework for using R in parallel called SPRINT.

SPRINT is a Simple Parallel R INTerface and aims to allow researchers
to easily access High Performance Computing to perform statistical 
analysis on post genomic data using R. 

We are now gathering input from R users on what specific functions 
create bottlenecks in their analysis. This information will be used to
direct the developments of SPRINT, to ensure that key routines are 
optimised and that the functionality is immediately relevant to R users. 

It is your chance to tell us what R functions are specific bottleneck 
for your work. I encourage you to take part in our SPRINT online user 
requirements survey at https://www.survey.ed.ac.uk/sprint/. 

Taking part in the survey should only take around 15 minutes.

Thank you for your valuable input.

Please don't hesitate to contact me if you have any questions regarding
SPRINT by emailing sprint at lists.ed.ac.uk.

Kind regards,

Muriel Mewissen
