Hi All,
          Is there a way to select random sequences from a multi fasta
file. I am using some method (not that sophisticated).
Is there any module in bioperl that can do that?

I have a fasta file containing around 10 million reads, and i want to get
few thousand sequences out of it (randomly selected).
