Hello everyone!  Hi Sean!

Hey, this we've got to see.  =)

Umm, that depends on how long you think it'd take you to do the extra work.  If you can post them during my three-week break (Oct 16 - Nov 6), much better so I can really take a good look at it.  If not, then it's okay... there's always Christmas!  Hohoho!  =)

Where do you have it in?  A Visio, Dia diagram?

Thanks, Sean.  I miss the days (and nights) of coding into the wee hours of the morning, with a cup of coffee in hand!  

While I can't say I've turned into an expert biologist overnight (or over 6 months), I've managed to pick up a few bits and pieces from my classes which will hopefully prove helpful to the BioPHP project.

Frankie, how'd you find the PDF files on computational bio I sent you?  Interesting?  Boring?  Initially, I found it overwhelming.  Imagine being flooded with all the queer-sounding names for the algorithms (e.g. Four Russians algo), but after a while they grow on you...
