Ok. Over the weekend and on monday I will have time to work again on
bioperl. Here is my proposed to do list.

(1) Drudgery:

Bio::PrimarySeq / PrimarySeqI to be pulled up to QC criteria.

Bio::SimpleAlign up to QC criteria as well.

(2) More fun stuff.

Refactor Bio::Seq set to be more flexible for other formats.

I am going to proprose a class


which derives off Bio::Seq, and has extensions for GenEMBL stuff, being
the date, sv etc etc stuff. Does this sound ok?

I don't think we need separate GenBank/EMBL classes as the information in
the files are pretty concordant (of course, if someone wants to help me
with ASN.1 parsing into this, join the party!)

(3) See what I can get out of Keith's PSU code into bioperl.

Sounds good? Hilmar - how are we doing - there aren't many green lights on
the task list, but I think that's because we haven't updated the Wiki...
