BiobaseFasta: Iteratee-based FASTA parser

[ bioinformatics, gpl, library, program ] [ Propose Tags ]

Enumeratees for FASTA-handling and convenience functions. In a typical application, the user should write an enumeratee to extract information to allow for efficient low-memory handling of queries.

Facilities for fast, efficient linear scans are provided. These functions are not yet stable and could move to another library, if more data sources require efficient scans.

The library is, in general, in a "preview" state. In cases where you need to scan large FASTA files fast and with low memory overhead, the enumeratees should, however, already be useable enough.

Dependencies base (>3 && <5), bytestring, iteratee, iteratee-compress, transformers [details]
