This sounds great to me.

Resequencing in general (whether by Affy or by other technology such as Celexa) is likely to become important in the coming few years, and I wonder whether it's worth thinking about a general paradigm for handing this.  But I suggest that you proceed full-speed-ahead, and we can sort this out in the future.

Perhaps one of the experts can advise you whether to use the Bio::UnivAln object, some of the Bio::Assembly objects, or some other approach.

The main goal of the software is to take into account for the redundant fragments. The software is able to align the redundant fragments to the entire sequence and in particular to call bases which arent called by the entire sequence and to detect insertions/deletion, depending on the design of the redundant frags.
