Practical Innovation at BioCon 2003


Introduction to Perl Regexes for Bioinformaticians (part 1)
Damian Conway, Thoughtstream

Track: Bioinformatics 2003 Tutorial
Date: Monday, February 03
Time: 8:30am - 12:00pm
Location: California Ballroom B

In part 1 of this full-day tutorial, Conway explores the principles and mechanisms underlying all Perl regular expressions. You'll see how the highly compact syntax of Perl patterns controls a built-in pattern-matching "engine," and learn how to design and construct Perl regexes efficiently. We'll also look at the four principal uses of regexes in Perl, discuss a number of uniquely Perlish regex "idioms," and examine how those techniques apply specifically to the kinds of searching, sorting, and sifting tasks commonly encountered in bioinformatics. By the end of this first half of the day-long tutorial, Perl's regexes will no longer seem like a mystery wrapped in an enigma wrapped in line-noise.
