Lightning talk

You can find more information on the speaker's site:

The Sol Genomics Network (SGN) is a website which is a platform for plant
biologists and breeders to search for, curate and visualize data related to
plant genomics. SGN is a part of the Boyce Thompson Institute for Plant
Research, located at Cornell University, and is funded by the National Science

The SGN website is written in Perl 5 and relies on Catalyst, Moose, DBIx::Class
and thousands of other CPAN modules. It is a great example of how Perl is being
used in academic research and every line of code is open source and available
on Github.

This lightning talk will give a high-level description of how SGN uses Perl to
help researchers find, manipulate and visualize their data as well as how SGN
contributes back to the Perl community.
