Python in Computational Biology and Chemistry 
by Andrew Dalke 

Andrew will describe how Python is used in molecular modeling, 
bioinformatics, chemoinformatics, and related fields. 

Wait! Don't leave! 

You're not a researcher in these fields and he knows it. He's 
going to give a taste of what the underlying problems are in some 
of those subfields, an idea of what Python tools are available 
and describe a few of the reasons why sometimes Perl, FORTRAN, or 
another language is the dominate language for that some that domain. 
There will be some colorful pictures. He'll also include a bit of 
what it's like to be a software developer in a scientific field.
