I suppose we are entering the private message arena, but since
I am the lead Bioinformatisist (which is as clumsy to say as to
type) for a small biotech company. When I got into Bioinformatics,
much of what I did was write parsers in Perl, a task for which
I was self taught (and not very well I might add.) So I learned
by trial and error many of the topics covered in that book.
Now that BioPerl is on the scene, many of those same things
can be done much more cleanly using community maintained modules.
Now I use Perl for lots of database connectivity, especially tying
together data analysis results in a unix cluster to our database
on a Windows box.
