in reply to Memory Efficient Alternatives to Hash of Array

While Perl has become the language du jour for bioinformatics, something of this size will benefit from using something like CouchDB or BigTable. In general, I would look at Erlang. Most bio problems are massively parallelizable and that's one of the things Erlang was specifically designed to do.

My criteria for good software:
  1. Does it work?
  2. Can someone else come in, make a change, and be reasonably certain no bugs were introduced?
