It’s perhaps enough to let a programmer orient themselves to the data and operations on it that go sequence data, but I have found it gives a false confidence that these abstractions are useful ways to think when addressing biological problems.

        I love the idea! As a bioinformatician, the biology portion always feels more obscure to find simple references for the biological concepts to point people towards, compared to documentation for software.
