Where were you guys last year when I spent HOURS AND HOURS on those
computational biology programs for Rosalind?!   ;-)   Although I've played
with comp bio and know a thing or two about some of its algorithms, bio is
not really where my heart is at, although I would love to attend some of
the meetings.  You should really consider recruiting in the computer
science department at Northeastern Illinois University.  I personally know
one lady in the department, Rachel Trana, who is very strongly interested
in computational biology, and in fact will be teaching the comp bio class
again next semester.  ( And she uses Python! )  Why not reach out to her
and let her know about the new SIG group?  She may even want her students
to get involved, which would be really cool.  Just something to think about.
