Based on user suggestion we launch series of posts based on ideas promoted by the Uses This website.

How are the tools that we use every day being developed? What do bioinformaticians with proven track record use to get their work done?

I have sent out a few emails and I will start posting answers as they come in. Feel free to send me candidates (or volunteer) for the interviews.

I would love to hear from a member of the Galaxy team. Given your workplace you should have easy access to them, correct?

Terrific idea for a series, Istvan. Funny, I just talked with Jim last week and learned about his heavy-lifting on the IGV tools. Amazing work from a comparatively small team (compared to other genome browser teams).
