Dear fellow Bionetters,

The Bioperl Development List has been established recently, to coordinate
development of a set of modules to manage molecular biology information
in Perl.

A few days ago, a proposal for Perl5 Objects for Sequences, Alignments, and
Phylogenies has been posted to the list, and we hope to get discussion going
really soon. The more feedback you provide now, the better Bioperl modules
can serve you at a future date ! The URL of the proposal is

To join the Bioperl Development List, send a "subscribe BIOPERL" message to
bioperl-request at mole.bio.cam.ac.uk
You will be sent further information, and instructions on how you can
unsubscribe. The URL of the list is http://scop.mrc-lmb.cam.ac.uk/pub/bioperl/

About Perl: Perl5 (a significant improvement of former Perl versions) is
a high-level scripting language with facilities for modular,
object-oriented programming; productivity gains can be significant without
compromising high standards in maintainabilty and readabilty. Applications
that require very high speed can be integrated from a C library;
a Perl compiler is under development.

best wishes,
