Welcome to the inaugural post for the Pathway Tools developers’ blog! If you’re not already familiar with Pathway Tools, the links to the right can help you find out what Pathway Tools is, what it can do for you, how to get it, and what it looks like in action. The purpose of this blog, on the other hand, is to alert you to newer features of which you may not be aware, to pass along tips for accomplishing various tasks, to disseminate news, and in general to create a mechanism by which the developers can communicate and interact with the user community at large. We hope you'll find it useful and informative. Feel free to offer suggestions for any topics you’d like to see covered!
