The bio package

[Tags: lgpl, library]

This is a collection of data structures and algorithms I've found useful when building various bioinformatics-related tools and utilities.

Current list of features includes: a Sequence data type supporting protein and nucleotide sequences and conversion between them, quality data, reading and writing Fasta formatted files, reading TwoBit and phd formats. Rudimentary support for doing alignments - including dynamic adjustment of scores based on sequence quality - and Blast output parsing. Partly implemented single linkage clustering, and multiple alignment.
