I've been a long time user of Perl. I had heard of BioPerl a long time
ago, never looked into things beyond that.
I have a problem with deer on my farm, and so I am building up a
database on things which deer might not want to eat. In doing so, and
research the edibility of red elderberries, I happened across the
Native Plants database at Evergreen.ca. There was a message there,
that they are shutting down the database at the end of the month (May
2018), and they would like to find a new home for the data.
I have a fair amount of disk space, so I sent them a note. Their reply
was that they would prefer that some organization take it over, not
just someone with a few TB of disk space. :-)
I mentioned CPAN and BioPerl in my reply to them. I thought I should
"advertise" this here as well.
