The Bioperl Project
For those interested in bioinformatics and programming, there are several exciting projects going on that are interested to keep an eye out on or maybe even get involved with. One of the oldest ones is The Bioperl Project.
From their site:
'Officially organized in 1995 and existing informally for several years prior, The Bioperl Project is an international association of developers of open source Perl tools for bioinformatics, genomics and life science research.
The Bioperl server provides an online resource for modules, scripts, and web links for developers of Perl-based software for life science research. We can also provide web, FTP and CVS space for individuals and organizations wishing to distribute or otherwise make freely available standalone scripts & code. '
