It is my pleasure to announce that the user of the month for December 2012 is Kurt LaButti from the Department of Energy's Joint Genome Institute.

Kurt has been in the genomics industry since 2001. He started at what is now the Broad Institute of Harvard and MIT working on the human genome. He performed closure on chromosomes 17 and 11. He then transitioned into bioinformatics and assembly analysis, working primarily on fungi and virus genomes. At the Joint Genome Institute, he assembles and analyzes data from the DOE community, sequencing relevant organisms. His group handles microbes, metagenomes, fungi, and other interesting projects.

We are very pleased to see so many of our users utilizing Globus Online to support their scientific research -- this week I heard one user had moved 6TB of data over the course of 2 days. Other users would benefit from hearing more of these stories, to see what your colleagues are achieving and to give you ideas for your own work. So, we've decided to pick a User of the Month to draw attention to particularly impressive, innovative and/or widely applicable usage scenarios that the entire user community should know about. For our inaugural selection, I'm happy to announce May's User of the Month is NERSC (National Energy Research Scientific Computing Center).
