7. Oh believe me, that software will happen. I'm a relatively low level guy, but the big guys...

...definitely appreciate the need for it.

Some of the problem derives from the fact that there's a habit of thinking that nucleic acids are all about and only about coding. Another is the habit of addressing the analytical issues and synthetic issues associated with nucleic acids with PCR and qPCR.

That's why I found the review in the paper in the OP so exciting. It's really not about coding at all; it's about catalysis.

Relatively late in life I've become a mass spec acolyte. It is the most incredibly powerful tool, particularly when matched with software. Recently I've seen mass spec software that can do in a half hour what used to take graduate students years to do. The technical guy with whom I chatted on the phone for an hour or so was hired by his company to talk to guys like me. He gets it, and I'm sure his company will get it. They're an innovative bunch and will succeed, at least if science isn't executed in this country by the ignorance that's become fashionable in our Congress and Executive branch.
