Below is a table listing the various responsibilities involved in this group and the people responsible for them. If you need anything done here, please contact the appropriate person by appending @compbio.washington.edu to the usernames below. To see the full name of the person identified, type in ypcat passwd | fgrep <username> where <username> is the name listed below (the reverse query may also be performed to identify the username from the first or last name).

There is a program manager for Rosen as well as a departmental administrator for various higher level managerial and budget issues. For each of these tasks, the assigned person will coordinate with them to accomplish the desired outcome, though in specific cases, it might be better for the individual to do a particular task instead of going to them. The main thing is to get things quickly and efficiently.

In case you're wondering why some names don't appear on this list:

  • Only people who are with us for longer than six months will be regular volunteers.
  • Temporary members will be asked to volunteer only as a backup and during the times they are around.
  • Each task will generally be assigned to least two people if possible (one serving as a backup).
