It's On: ClaireWatch 2007

For anyone who missed the news on our sister site, GenomeWeb Daily News, Claire Fraser-Liggett has resigned her post as president of the Institute for Genomic Research and will be leaving on April 20.

No word yet on where Fraser-Liggett will make her next appearance, though if the incoming call volume here at GTO is any indication, there's no shortage of people trying to guess.

Hey, this is why the world has comment sections. Feel free to post here if you think you know where Fraser-Liggett will report for duty on April 23. And Claire, you're welcome to put an end to the speculation and just let us know. Wherever it turns out to be, GTO wishes you luck.
