Hi Jonathan,

Great to hear you're interested in including your code in BioPerl!

In general, we are liberal in what we accept. I think (and I'd like to hear what other BioPerlers think) the value of adding your code depends a lot on how it ties in with existing BioPerl objects — does it make use of Bio::Seq or Bio::SeqIO, for example?

If you haven't already, you might want to take a look at some of our developer documentation. For example:
 
	http://www.bioperl.org/wiki/Bioperl_Best_Practices
	http://www.bioperl.org/wiki/Advanced_BioPerl


Also, the other thing to be aware of is that in the near future BioPerl itself will be splitting up into separately distributed modules anyway.

I can't find a good recent thread that discussed the rationale and details, but here's a couple anyway:
