Bioinformatics can be done with any kind of language. Some
are more usefull for certain problems. 

LISP is often used in Artificial Intelligence (AI) and related 
methods like neural networks or genetic algorithms. These are 
often used in bioinfo or QSAR/QSPR studies.

Nota bene: wenn Word für Längeres geeignet wäre, würde es 
schließlich nicht Word, sondern Sentence, Page oder 
Article heißen ;-)               Matthias Mühlich in dctt
