And this is a mail list for BioPerl (the toolkit), not perl and  
biology.  We will sometimes answer questions along these lines if they  
are relevant, but apparently our answers (all notably BioPerl-related,  
mind you) were tossed to the side and you asked for more.

I suppose you at least showed some honesty and revealed exactly why  
you needed this answered, but again, don't be surprised if you get a  
nasty response and no answers.  You won't get any from me.

Interesting how you skirted that last question.  We won't do your  
homework for you.  Sorry.
