Re: [Biojava-dev] (OT) Come work in New Zealand - Job: Senior Bioinformatician at AgResearch

Yes, there is a high use of Bio(Perl|Python|Java) within our bioinformatics group, many of them lurk on
these lists as well. 
I know when I've posted vacancies in the past I've generated a few genuine enquiries from people who've
always dreamed of moving to NZ :-)

Hello Russell,

Is there a strong use of BioPerl or BioJava within the group?
Otherwise sending it to these lists does seem a bit off topic...

(I do Biopython so wouldn't qualify for the post on that basis ;) )
