James Tisdall
James Tisdall was Member of Technical Staff at Bell Laboratories in Murray Hill, New Jersey, where he worked in the Information Principles Research Laboratory as a programmer and researcher. He began using Perl in bioinformatics in 1991. In 1992 he released the first version of DNA Workbench, a client/server, multi-platform (PC, Mac, Unix) and parallel processing bioinformatics toolkit written entirely in Perl and served from fifteen Sun servers in the Human Genome Project to hundreds of laboratories worldwide, featuring regular expression search of all of Genbank in 30 seconds. After leaving the Human Genome Project, he led the scientific computing effort at Mercator Genetics; and he led the Bioinformatics Group at Fox Chase Cancer Center. He currently consults for Biocomputing Associates. He is the author of Beginning Perl for Bioinformatics and the upcoming Mastering Perl for Bioinformatics, both from O'Reilly & Associates, as well as several articles and papers in scientific journals. He holds a B.A. in mathematics from City College of New York, an M.S. in computer science from Columbia University, and has held university and dean's fellowships at the University of Pennsylvania and the University of Michigan.
