|WikiProject Computational Biology||(Rated C-class, High-importance)|
The page says that the original authors are Jeff Chang and Brad Chapman. The citation is to their ACM journal article "Biopython: Python tools for computation biology." A non-paywalled version of that article is at http://biopython.org/DIST/docs/acm/ACMbiopy.html . You'll see that while they are the authors of the paper, the paper says nothing about the original Biopython authors. Therefore, this citation does not support the claim being made.
The two originators of the project are Jeff Chang and Andrew Dalke. See http://www.dalkescientific.com/writings/PyCon2004.html for a statement to that effect by Andrew Dalke, and you can see history leading to that OiB'99 BoF session at http://bio.perl.org/pipermail/bioperl-l/1999-August/003255.html .
Now, "originator" is of course not the same as "author", and in any case I'm Andrew Dalke so this is a "Conflict of interest#Writing about yourself and people you know". Because the cited page is to a prestigious journal and my blog is not, I figured I would give more evidence here.
The first posts to the mailing list were in Sept. 1999 ( http://lists.open-bio.org/pipermail/biopython/1999-September/date.html ) , and Brad did not get involved with the project until Feb. 8, 2000 ( http://lists.open-bio.org/pipermail/biopython/2000-February/000158.html ). The first code was checked in to CVS on Feb. 8, 2000 by Jeff Chang (http://lists.open-bio.org/pipermail/biopython/2000-February/000163.html ) where he "added the code for the sequence class Andrew proposed a few months ago and have started work on parsers for Blast, Fasta, and SwissProt."
I think this establishes that Brad was not one of the "original author(s)" of Biopython and/or that the list of original authors should be expanded to include Andrew Dalke, if not also other people. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 188.8.131.52 (talk) 23:01, 27 January 2013 (UTC)
