If you are using an aspect of the BEAR services you are probably not alone. Setting up a Special Interest Group is a good way of getting and receiving peer group support, often from people outside of your research area. Any BEAR-related service is a candidate for a SIG, and could include:
- Application specific groups, such as Abaqus (finite-element structural analysis) or Ansys CFX and Fluent (computational fluid dynamics)
- Domain specific groups such as *Omics with specialist resources such as Galaxy and GATK
- Programming languages, including parallel code development
Offers to help in or lead any of these subgroups would be welcomed by the BEAR User Group Chair, Prof. Jean-Baptiste Cazier, Director of the Centre for Computational Biology (firstname.lastname@example.org).
