"Perl and it's Application to Proteomics"

If you have the mass spec. protein database searching tool SEQUEST provided by Thermo Finnigan Corporation then you already have Perl installed on your PC, that means that you can start playing today.  Don't know what Perl is, then find out with an introductory article at "The Perl Journal".  Starting to get interested, find out "How Perl Saved the Human Genome Project" with an article by Lincoln Stein at the BioPerl Project.  If you want to get Perl go to the CPAN  or Active State sites, then you can write and run scripts to do almost anything you want.  The O'Riley series of books on Perl are about the best books on the subject.  For additional references take a look at;  Learning Perl, by Schwartz and Christiansen Programming Perl, by Wall, Schwartz and Christiansen Perl Cookbook, by Christiansen and Torkington.
