On November 22nd 2005 Simbios held a retreat that all simbios faculty, staff, postdocs, students, NIH Program Officer Peter Lyster and NIH Lead Science Officer Peter Highnam attended.
In addition to discussing the current state of Simbios and goals for next year, every participant had an oportunity to present a potential "home-run" for Simbios.
What is a Simbios home-run?
Participants were then divided into four breakout sessions.
Session 2: External software to prioritize for acquisition
Session 3: Home run synthesis
Session 4: Internal software development priorities
Each breakout session presented a summary of their findings.
The meeting concluded with a closed faculty meeting.
