I sit in my little windowless office day by day, churning out
documentation that may or may not ever be read. My job is very
low-profile; I mainly produce requirements and testing documents which
are seldom seen outside of my group, and definitely not publishable.

So, in today's newspaper:

"...The Seattle researchers screened more than 15,000 genes before
finding the one they're pinning their hopes on: Leucine Rich Repeat
Transmembrane 3. They used a technique that actually blocked the gene's
activity to learn its function."

Our group has built 12 applications (all feeding off of a single Oracle
database) that help the scientists in the screening of these genes. It
is our LIMS (Laboratory Information Management System) and other related
tools that gives the scientist the ability to work in a high-throughput

My job has just made the world a little better. :)
