Practical Innovation at BioCon 2003


Introduction to Perl Regexes for Bioinformaticians (part 2)
Damian Conway, Thoughtstream

Track: Bioinformatics 2003 Tutorial
Date: Monday, February 03
Time: 1:30pm - 5:00pm
Location: California Ballroom B

In part 2 of this full-day tutorial, Conway looks at the more advanced and powerful features of Perl regular expressions such as code embedding, user-defined assertions, regex recursion, and backtracking control. These high-end features are not covered in most Perl textbooks or classes, yet understanding and being able to apply them is essential when dealing with large, real world data sets. During the afternoon, Conway works through several everyday, yet challenging, problems in bioinformatic information processing to illustrate how the Perl's regular expression mechanism can be tamed and harnessed to solve them. By the end of this second half of the tutorial, the full (and surprising) power of Perl's regular expression will be at your command.
