in reply to Beginning Perl For Bioinformatics

I wanted to go to Arizona, but I can only go to one conference a year, and there are others that I should probably go to.

As for your comment about highly skilled programmers, I suppose that may apply to non-bioinformatics-initiated programmers, but to anyone who has been doing it awhile will probably find the material covered to be a little too simple. I did find that the examples were well written, generally using strict, and using BioPerl where appropriate (that is, after it has already gone over many parsing basics that would be better handled through BioPerl--Gotta teach the new-comers how it is done).
