30 Our group owes its early organizational support to its association with the <a href="http://www.techfak.uni-bielefeld.de/bcd/Transfer97/award.html">award-winning</a> VSNS-BCD <a href="http://www.techfak.uni-bielefeld.de/bcd/welcome.html">BioComputing

31 Courses</a>; some students of the 1996 course (Chris Dagdigian, Richard Resnick, Lew Gramer, Alessandro Guffanti, and others) have contributed code and commentary. Georg Fuellen, the VSNS-BCD chief organizer was one of the driving forces behind bioperl. Steven Brenner, who was an early adopter of Perl for
32 bioinformatics provided some of the early work on bioperl. Lincoln Stein
33 has long provided guidance and code.

35 Bioperl was then taken up by people developing code at the large
36 genome centres. In particular at Stanford, Steve Chervitz at the
37 Genome Sequencing Centre (St Louis) Ian Korf and at the Sanger Centre
38 (Cambridge UK) Ewan Birney. All of the C code XS extensions were
39 provided by Ewan Birney. Bioperl is used in anger at these sites,
40 indicating that is both useful and that it works.

42 Jason Staijch and Hilmar Lapp joined bioperl for the drive towards a
43 0.7 release over 2000 and the first part of 2001, which includes a
44 revised feature location model, richer feature objects (in particular
45 genes) and more and better tools. Peter Schatner and Lorenz Pollak
46 contributed serious chunks of code, being the AlignIO and bptutorial
47 scripts and the BPLite port to bioperl respectively. At this time
48 Bioperl was being used in absolute earnest by the Ensembl group which
49 shook out a number of problems in the code base. Additional
50 compatibility with the Sequence Workbench (bioperl-gui) (Mark
51 Wilkinson and David Block) and Biocorba (Jason Staijch, Brad Chapman
52 and Alan Robinson) and finally Game-XML (Brad Marshall) provided more
53 interoperability.

55 In May 2001 Heikki Lehvaslaiho who has been a very significant coder, bugfixer and contributor was made part of the bioperl "core" group. The current core group consists of: Ewan Birney, Hilmar Lapp, Jason Stajich, Heikki Lehvaslaiho and Chris Dagdigian. Members of the bioperl core are responsible for getting new releases out the door and generally handling all the behind the scenes work that running an open source project involves.

60 Current server hardware for bioperl.org (and other open-bio.org hosted
61 projects) was provided by Compaq Computer Corporation. The donation
62 was facilitated by both the Pharmaceutical Sales and High Performance
63 Technical Computing (HPTC) groups.

65 The bioperl servers reside in Cambridge, Massachusetts USA with
66 colocation facilities and internet bandwidth donated by Genetics
67 Institute. In particular Dr. Steven Howes, Kenny Grant &
68 Rich DiNunno have made significant efforts on our behalf.
