Hi all, 


Recently I was working on a project which required some manipulation of
Quality files. I may be wrong in this, but I don't believe that there is
a Quality format for Bio:SeqIO. If there is, someone could point me in
the right direction as I could write a much nicer script then what I
currently have, if not I was wondering if anyone here has any use for
such a thing. I am pretty new to developing but would be willing to give
it a shot, as I feel that for all the use I get out of BioPerl with no
thanks to anyone who spent time on writing something I used, I could try
and contribute my limited amount. Any comments would be appreciated, and
don't be afraid to tell me this is a lost cause. I realize that quality
files tend to be less important than FASTA sequence files. I will give
you a little information on me so that you know what to expect/what I am
working with.

I am a fourth year bioinformatics student, and am currently working as a
summer student. I have some limited experience with writing perl modules
and test scripts. Mostly I write perl to do specific jobs, that I or
someone else has come up with to fill some immediate need of the
company. I am interested in most things bioinformatics/computer
sci/biology and am hoping to do Graduate studies when I finish my

Well that's enough for now, if you have any comments/suggestions I would
appreciate it.


Cheers, Wayne
