BinSeqs is a Python package intended to enrich the SeqIO framework from Biopython by adding support for some binary sequence formats.
xdnaformat, used by DNA Strider and Serial Cloner: reading and writing supported
snapgeneformat, used by SnapGene: reading support only
The BinSeqs parsers and writers are not designed to be used independently and should instead be used through the Biopython's SeqIO module.
Simply import the
incenp.bio.seqio module to make the parsers
and writers available to Biopython's SeqIO:
from Bio import SeqIO import incenp.bio.seqio records = list(SeqIO.parse('snapgene_file.dna', 'snapgene')) SeqIO.write(records, 'serialcloner_file.xdna', 'xdna')
