Biome! This makes the most sense to me; as Mark points out the name
works as an appropriate acronym (BioPerl with Metaclass Extensions),
as well as a biome being (per wikipedia):
"a climatically and geographically defined areas of ecologically
similar climatic conditions such as communities of plants, animals,
and soil organisms ... often referred to as ecosystems".
Seems a fitting name for a open-source project. I'll be moving the
namespace over to Biome over the next couple of days on github. Now I
owe Mark some beer...
Now, for extensions, should I assume this will eventually be BioPerl2
(and thus use BioX::*)? Or stick with BiomeX::*?
PS: Just a quick benchmark for the current Bio::Moose::PrimarySeq
implementation (we don't have SeqIO working as of yet, so the
benchmark script does the heavy lifting):
