bioperl popularity (measured by searches) going down day by day.

According to the following figure bioperl is loosing all its appealing day by day.  One critique to this plot is that big bio projects still are in perl like Ensembl, biopieces etc,  but not shown here. The pity is that R and biophyton have very good tools/pipelines for New Generation Sequencing and bioperl or other perl bio projects don't.

As I pondered in it's probably more appropriate to call it "normalization" instead of a decline, since there are now more active Python programmers than Perl.
