Time Nick Message
00:00 rbuels ch_: try typing rb<tab>
00:00 ch_ rbuels, ah thats nice
00:00 rbuels (depending on what client you're using(
00:00 ch_ i use xchat and it completes it
00:00 rbuels ch_: dbolser probably isn't around right now, but he'll probably see your messages when he's around next
00:01 rbuels ch_: most people leave their IRC clients on 24/7, or they use a proxy, so they don't miss any of the conversation.
00:01 rbuels ch_: i use xchat, with a proxy that stays connected for me
00:01 ch_ rbuels, yes it was actually a long time ago ( some month) since we chatted about swissknife.
00:02 ch_ rbuels, I mean I chatted with dbolser
00:02 * rbuels nods
00:03 ch_ rbuels, are you a bioperl user or do you also do development ?
00:03 rbuels ch_: i am both a user and a developer
00:03 rbuels ch_: although lately i don't do that much of either one, lol
00:03 ch_ rbuels, retired :-)
00:04 rbuels ch_: heh, no, just doing other things
00:04 rbuels ch_: i work at http://solgenomics.net , and most of what I've been doing lately is not very bioperl-heavy
00:06 ch_ rbuels, the website looks very nice, I am currently at http://compsysbio.univie.ac.at/news/ and thinking about a phd.
00:10 ch_ rbuels, what is your main field of interest ?
00:11 rbuels ch_: software development.
00:11 rbuels ch_: and software architecture
00:12 ch_ rbuels, so you're an software engineer and not a biologist right ?
00:14 rbuels ch_: mainly a software engineer.  having worked in this area for 6 years now, i have a fair amount of domain knowledge now as well.
00:17 ch_ rbuels, very interesting ! I started getting into programming 2 years ago. Although I am a trained biologist my interest go mainly towards computation.
00:20 rdesfo ch_: have you worked on any computational biology projects?
00:24 bag__ left #bioperl
00:24 ch_ rdesfo, I worked on some bacterial metatranscriptomics projects.
00:25 rdesfo nice
00:25 ch_ rdesfo, doing functional annotation and community profiling.
00:25 rdesfo did you use bioperl for that?
00:26 ch_ rdesfo, yes partly, especially for blast parsing.
00:26 ch_ rdesfo, it was very helpful
00:27 ch_ rdesfo, though not easy to pick up in the beginning as I did have very little computational background.
00:28 ch_ rdesfo, do you use bioperl a lot ?
00:29 rdesfo no, I working on learning it
00:29 rdesfo I use perl alot with my old job and going back to school for bioengineering
00:50 ch_ rdesfo, what was your old job ?
00:50 * ch_ curious
00:53 rdesfo ch_: associate software engineer
00:55 ch_ rdesfo, nice I like :-)
00:59 ch_ rdesfo, do you have a certain aim or just a general interest in bioengineering ?
01:06 rdesfo ch_ I would like to do medical research.... I'm hoping to get involved with bioperl in GSOC
01:49 staticX left #bioperl
02:09 ch_ rdesfo, to me it seems as biopython seems more "en vogue" right now.
02:16 rdesfo ch_: what do you mean "en vogu"?
02:18 ch_ rdesfo, it seems like there is more going on in biopython, just by checking the frequency of updates.
02:19 rdesfo ch_: I know the physics department at the school prefers python and if you do some searches online there are alot of programs for math and physics in python.  but I believe bioperl is still the prefered for genetics research
02:19 rdesfo ch_: at least at the school that is.
02:20 ch_ rdesfo, I think most of the code used is written in bioperl but this is more for historic reasons, I think biopython is developing quite rapidly.
02:22 rdesfo has biopython been around as long?
02:22 ch_ rdesfo, I think either is a good choice, but I think I remember that there were more people involved through gosc in biopython than in bioperl. I am not sure what this means.
02:22 rdesfo maybe there is more that needs to be developed
02:22 ch_ rdesfo, No I think biopython is a more recent development.
02:29 ch_ rdesfo, you're right that might be the case. Just my professor is so anti-perl and so fond of python that I keep comparing it.
02:33 ch_ rdesfo, was nice talking to you, see you around
02:35 ch_ left #bioperl
03:04 rdesfo left #bioperl
03:38 rdesfo joined #bioperl
03:39 rdesfo is it possible to add a link to modern perl in the "HOWTO:Beginners" wiki page?
03:40 rdesfo Modern perl is probably one of the most up to date perl books out there and also it can be downloaded for free in a pdf or epub format
