Hello BioPerl Folks,

I was thumbing through the BioPerl modules list and noticed that there was not any coverage in the area of processing (non-sequence) maps and genetic data.  I am working on some programs for processing physical and genetic maps, as well as genotypic and phenotypic data.   I was wondering, is there any interest in these areas in the BioPerl community or, have I overlooked previous work on these things?  

I know of some of the stuff that Lincoln Stein has done (on ACEDB, RH mapping, etc.) but I have not seen anything in the form of reusable software components for basic map manipulation, comparison, etc.  Nor am I aware of modules for manipulating raw data for genetic analysis.  I am fairly new to working with genetic data.  I would be interested in hearing of leads in this area.  However, if it is not already done, I would be willing to write it in the context of BioPerl.
