1 =head1 The Scriptome - Protocols for Manipulating Biological Data
2
3 The Scriptome is a set of tools that filter, format, and merge
4 data in tabular or common biological formats. Use single tools
5 to take a quick look at data, or string tools together
6 in a protocol to explore the data more deeply.

42 The Scriptome was designed especially for non-programmers or beginning
43 programmers, although more experienced programmers may find the site useful as
44 a data manipulation "cookbook". The tools can be used without understanding
45 them. Alternatively, you might find that reading and playing
46 with small, working code examples - and using them on your own data - is a good
47 way to learn Perl.

49 If you don't want to read the extensive help, take a text file and
50 add line numbers to it with calc_line_numbers (from the Calc page). Or change
51 a FASTA file to tabular format using change_fasta_to_tab (from the Change
52 page). Also, see the example that follows each tool.
