Hi, Paul.  Good to hear from you.

I'd love to hear about that, but at the next meeting we only have room
for 5 minute slots as the main talks will last 40 minutes each.  So,
if you'd like to present for 5 minutes, please let me know the talk's
title and what format, if any, your slides will be in.

If you'd like to talk for longer (would be great!) or will have
trouble preparing by the 13th, we can definitely fit you in next time
round, probably some time in September.

I've heard before that Perl was involved in human genome sequencing
but never directly from someone involved - fascinating stuff!
