ok. Can you send him your abstract text ??
I feel he should see it ASAP, b/c it may
help a lot if he still has to convince his company to go the Perl way.
I've got to convince local ppl, too. So as soon as I can forward the
abstract text, pls tell me. Bielefeld ppl are mainly JAVA freaks,
and 2 of them will be at the OiB conference (Chris Bueschking and
Chris Schleiermacher; the latter is also doing a little Perl).

I'll include _very short_ explanations of this into the slides.
I don't expect an official release of Adm/Phy.pm for a long time,
b/c I don't have time to make it ready to use for others, and
it contains my advisor's ideas that he'd like to see published before
any code is released.
Instead, I view Adm/Phy.pm as a proof of concept: ``Here's what you can do
using Bio:: modules, and the Perl graphics module PGPERL'' !
