In the wake of the recent tragic events in Boston, I’d like to first start by sending my condolences and well wishes to any and everyone affected. Experiemental Biology communication liasons did a wonderful job at keeping attendees informed via twitter (@ASBMB) , the offical conference website, emails and “The Interactome” blog. I just touched down in Boston not too long ago, and am looking forward to what EB has in store. Please stay tuned as I give you my recapitulations, thoughts and highlights of the event happenings. Thanks to everyone for their patience and dissemination of information, and welcome to Boston!
