[Bioperl-l] Re: Workbench3 to have das functionality?

Great, Lincoln! I'm looking forward to it - I just downloaded das and
had a look at Geodesic, which is obviously in a state of development right
now - Go Robin!
The parts of your code that I want are the connecting bits and some of the
parsing bits- and then we draw GFF format pictures very easily. My
concern is going to be in lining the sequences up. I need to study das
and xml a bit more before I'm confident we can do this.
Meanwhile, I'm going to try to adapt your perl server to bioperl objects -
unless that's been done as well in ensembl or something?
