About the bioperl project
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.
Facilitated by the Open Bioinformatics Foundation we work closely with our friends and colleagues across many projects including biojava.org, biopython.org, DAS, bioruby.org, biocorba.org, EnsEMBL and EMBOSS.
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.
The BioJava Project is an open-source project dedicated to providing Java tools for processing biological data. This will include objects for manipulating sequences, file parsers, CORBA interoperability, DAS, access to ACeDB, dynamic programming, and simple statistical routines to name just a few things.
The BioJava library is useful for automating those daily and mundane bioinformatics tasks. As the library matures, the BioJava libraries will provide a foundation upon which both free software and commercial packages can be developed.
