3. Tripal will also be represented at the GMOD workshop, Wednesday, Jan 17, 10:30-2:00.
 
We had very low interest in a tutorial on Tripal install and basic site development training, so we have cancelled the tutorial. If anyone wants to work with a Tripal developer to do an online training, please email Meg Staton (mestato@gmail.com) and we'll set something up.
