in reply to Other Bioinformatics Monks Out There?

I'm an MS candidate in Bioinformatics working on evolutionary algorithms and their applications in cancer classification, hopefully I'll finish my thesis and move on to a PhD program.

I use Perl on a daily basis to hack out scripts and to quickly ask questions about the datasets that I deal with. BioPerl is central to a lot of the work that I'm doing, as it makes tying a lot of Perl programs together very easy. However, every now and then I find it a bit lacking. For example, I'm currently doing a bit of work on RNA editing and trans-splicing, and I'm writing some custom objects that trans-splice and assemble sequences from trans-spliced FeatureTable definitions.

I'm also employed as a sysadmin, and I find Perl invaluable for writing Nagios plugins, database updating scripts and testing suites for various services. Perl is just a good way to get all sorts of computer-related things done.

[Corion]: Yay. Traditional finance situation averted. Bonds can be quoted in amounts (1_000_000 EUR) or per unit (1 unit). And a traditional error is to trade 2_000_000 piece when you meant to trade 2_000_000 EUR.
[Corion]: (one of my scripts simply catches high amounts and I phone people making that trade, ideally before the payment is due)
[Corion]: The sad thing is that my script sits at the end of the pipeline and can only look at the payments due today or tomorrow basically, while there are many more systems further up in the pipeline
[GotToBTru]: better late than never, I guess
[Corion]: GotToBTru: Sure - there is a long and sad story of many frantic cleanups that led us to implement this notification ;)
