Scott graduated from The Ohio State University in 1990 with a B. S. in Chemical Engineering and continued on to the University of California in San Diego for graduate school, where he studied improvements to monoclonal antibody production in industrial processes through cell culture and cell cycle modifications.  Upon earning his Ph. D. in Chemical Engineering, he began work in the software industry, working for MSI/Accelrys, Pangea Systems/DoubleTwist, and Athersys, until finally coming to rest at Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory in [[User:Lstein|Lincoln Stein's]] lab.  He is the coordinator and a lead developer of the [[Main_Page|GMOD project]], focusing mainly on core schema and tool development, but is also a developer for GBrowse as well as in the BioPerl project. Scott also teaches programming, web development and database design courses at the University of Phoenix.  Scott is a happy husband and father of fourteen year old boy-girl twins.

The Generic Model Organism Database project is applying for a [http://grants.nih.gov/grants/guide/pa-files/PAR-11-095.html community resources for genomics grant] from the NIH to continue the work that GMOD does, with a focus on JBrowse and Chado development, and GMOD coordination (standards, meetings, and courses).
+
 
+
We need to demonstrate that we support the community and have the support of the community, and we would like to demonstrate that by submitting many letters of support from users. We would be very grateful if you could take a couple of minutes to write such a letter; it should include information about how you use or plan to use GMOD software. There are some template paragraphs below for inspiration.
+
 
+
The letters should be on institutional letterhead, signed, and then scanned to a PDF. Please [mailto:help@gmod.org contact the GMOD helpdesk] or [mailto:scott@scottcain.net email Scott directly] if you're willing to write a letter or if you need any help.
+
 
+
'''The deadline for getting the letters of support is September 3'''.
+
 
+
This grant would help to secure the future of important parts of the GMOD project, so we would be very grateful for your help!

===Generic intro paragraph===

+
The GMOD project has two related aims: to provide open source and interoperable visualization, annotation and data management software for use with genomics data, and to foster the growth of a community of developers and users who ask diverse questions but share common problems.  The project does this in multiple ways:  they provide venues for in person interaction, including GMOD community meetings, workshops at conferences and courses, as well as avenues for online interaction, including software repositories, mailing lists, standards and a wiki-powered web site.  Their continued work is important for the future of genomics-driven biology research.

===Took a summer school course===

The GMOD projects has provided many courses to reach out to the community and get new users.  I took one of the "summer school" courses '''''WHEN, WHERE''''' which covered several topics, including Chado, GBrowse, Galaxy, Apollo, Intermine, BioMart, WebApollo.  The course brought together experts in each of the software projects (typically the lead developer) to teach and it provided an excellent opportunity both to learn about the software and to interact with both the developers and the other students who were also grappling with their own massive data influxes.

The GMOD project aims to promote communication between software communities and interoperability between software.  They provide several venues for communicating: community meetings, workshops, mailing lists, and a wiki-powered website.  They also provide some standards for software interoperability.  These are important to us '''''because ....'''''
