On the Julia forum, there was the suggestion of creating a new "flavor" of the BioStar Handbook, but using Julia as programming language for the code examples.

https://discourse.julialang.org/t/biostar-handbook-computational-genomics-and-julia-to-be-or-not-to-be/25732

Is this allowed under the current license, and if so, would there be any interest from the current authors in collaborating on this?

I've been intrigued by Julia for a while, would personally be keen to see this.

Code examples may be translated in any other language,

What is not permitted is re-publishing another version of the book where any of the content is copied verbatim and only the code is changed.

As always Fair Use applies and I consider myself a supporter of Fair Use policies.
