I am a bioinformatician. A weird new field between computer science and biology. I coordinate the bioperl project and am one of the leaders behind the Ensembl project.

Today was about finishing. I put to bed a power point presentation (hmmmmmm. When do I move to Kpresenter?) and a latex document.

In addition I worked on getting Wise2 2.1.22c out of the door. Little bug fixes. Nice to get it out though

There are some virtual contig bugs to be tracked down inside Ensembl. Grrrrrrrrrrr.

Another day, another hang-over.

It has been a day back to work and doing that "people thing" that managers have to do. hey-ho.

No code. Not one line. But I kicked off some scripts, and learnt about the command line tool "split"

Obessive browsing due to the fact that I have posted an article. Interesting to see what sort of effect this has on the projects.

Must do some ...serious... work today

Zach Garner explained that he just thought I was worthy of status. Two things I now want on advogato

  • Ability to message people somehow (otherwise what is the point!)
  • a search advogato box...

Long haul from london to cambridge. Hacked a little bit more on the Wise2 "stripper" system for speed up. Nice little recursive function in there. Not tested. Also - to take advantage of it I need to write something down in the Dynamite compiler. Oh vey!

Came into the house, and dan has left it like a tip! Geez. Tidied the front room. yes - you guessed it - the TV does not work and I have some "proper" work to do. Hence work avoidance.

Andrew Dalke kindly upgraded me to journeyman status as did someone else (Zachgarner - who I don't know - did he just browse my home page? Or does he know me?) I am thinking about posting an article about bioinformatics. Might as well let people know we are out here. "Hacking the genome..."

Better go for a run and see if I can burn out some of these calories.

New Advogato Features

New HTML Parser: The long-awaited libxml2 based HTML parser code is live. It needs further work but already handles most markup better than the original parser.
