Comment: Surely Photoshop is the wrong analogy (Score 1) 208

by vevva (#12704958) Attached to: Photoshop for DNA
Other than being a computer application in which you can "do things" the choice of Photoshop as the analogous software tool seems to be picked entirely at random, and a lazy choice.

A more appropriate pick would probably been from under the CAD umbrella, or string manipulation tools like lex.

Hell, maybe even:

vi dna.txt

Dynamically binding, you realize the magic. Statically binding, you see only the hierarchy.

Working...
