Only on a local level. The lecturers in some of the biology courses I did would take surveys of the class to see what other subjects they did. There were no programmers.

That does overlook the possibility of amateur programmers, but when I found that one of my four hour practicals was "How to search the web", I started leaping to conclusions.

I'm guessing that in America computer technology isn't so strongly rejected by biologists. On the flip side, I know that many programmer types here a totally fascinated by bioinformatics. So I'd guess that they would be the ones buying, and that's what prompted my suggestion of "Bioinformatics for Perl".

Come to think of it, I would love to see a series of books like "Bioinformatics for programmers, Physics for programmers, Pol Sci for programmers". They could be written for people who like to learn new concepts, and are good at manipulating symbols and doing math and logic. Kind of the opposite of the XXX for dummies books.

I didn't believe in evil until I dated it.
