   Bioperl developer snap shot  1.3.01

This is the first developer snap shot from the BioPerl CVS head
that will eventually lead to release 1.4.

Note that this is called snap shot rather than release. Number of things
are guarantied to fail. The meaning of the snapshot is get more people
to move from 1.2 series into using the latest code base to have enough
momentum to put together a solid release.

1.3 series will be available only from the BioPerl FTP site and its
mirrors, not from CPAN. Depending on developer activity new snapshots
will be made available weekly or forth-nightly. These snap shots will be
taken from the CVS head until there is a good reason to branch.


New things is featured for the first time in 1.3 which will be relaesed
in 1.4 include:

- installable scripts
- Bio::Popgen
- Bio::Restriction
- Bio::Tools::Analysis - web based DNA and Protein analysis tools
- Bio::Seq::Meta - per residue annotable sequences
- Bio::Matrix::IO
- improved Bio::Tools::Genewise
- Bio::Tools::SiRNA, Bio::SeqFeature::SiRNA - small inhibitory RNA
- Bio::SeqFeature::Tools - seqFeature mapping tools
- Bio::Tools::dpAlign - pure perl dynamic programming sequence alignment
- new Bio::SearchIO formats
- new parsers in Bio::Tools:
