URL: C# in developing bioinformatics programming object model
Submitted by Deying Kong; posted on Thursday, October 03, 2002 (17 comments)
Currently most of software tools and programming models were developed with Perl or Java under the Unix system. Millions of Windows programmers are blocked from accessing these programming objects. Do they need to learn Unix and Perl? Many biologist are familiar with the easy-to-use Windows system. Can they spend less time learning Windows solutions? I am exploring the power of the Windows platform and the modern, elegant language C# (a cross platform .Net solution development language) and using them to develop a proper hierarchical object model and analysis tools.

Submitter Why not support Unix/Linux? Java, Perl or Python are also elegant and powerfull and freely avaible. Linux can be as easy as windows, with a very good GUI too, its just a matter of time to Linux become the choice in most molecular biology labs. And, Linux is much more stable and reliable than windows, if you are doing a research, you d ont want a blue screen error message when are saving a special sequence or analysis results or reset your computer after each run of a local BLAST search to free memory.

If there is people coding bioperl, there is people coding biopython. That is real redundance.
redundance?

Submitter Bioperl and Biopython have different approaches. Read the documentation :-)
