Subject: your tool is cool

Hi ...
This is not a ... ad. GREAT is awesome, we have been playing
around with it quite a bit.
you certainly will be referenced in a paper that we want to submit by
the end of this month. And I suspect many more after that.

Hey guys, I had a chance to try out GREAT for a bit with our ...
chip-seq data. It looks like an amazing tool and it's way ahead
of anything else out there for chipseq-related functional analysis. My
favorite part is being able to click through each annotation and
seeing the actual genes that were assigned.. very fancy and cool. That
and the integration with the mouse phenotype ontologies--a big thing
that other tools dont' have. Anyway we'll definitely be using it and
I'll be sure to spread the word!

Dear GREAT developers
I find this tool very useful in analyzing my ChIP-seq peaks, especially
after being quite frustrated using other tools to get insight into the
functions/pathways associated with my TF. ...

Hi Gill,
Just wanted to let you know that we tried GREAT on a new kind of genomic data set
after your talk. It worked amazingly well and made sense with respect to known biology.
Keep up the good work!
