Biobb_dna is a package composed of different analyses for nucleic acid trajectories.

Project description



Biobb_dna is a package composed of different analyses for nucleic acid trajectories and helical parameters. Biobb (BioExcel building blocks) packages are Python building blocks that create new layer of compatibility and interoperability over popular bioinformatics tools. The latest documentation of this package can be found in our readthedocs site: latest API documentation.


v2.0.0 2020.4


If you have no experience with anaconda, please first take a look to the New with anaconda? section of the official documentation.

Download repository

Although the biobb_dna repository is available at GitHub and thus you can clone it, we strongly recommend you to download it compressed and start your new project from scratch.

Create new conda environment

Once you have the project unzipped in your computer, please follow the next steps to create a new conda environment:

cd biobb_dna-master
conda env create -f conda_env/environment.yml

Update environment paths

Edit conda_env/biobb_dna.pth with the paths to your biobb_dna folder. Example:


Copy the edited conda_env/biobb_dna.pth file to the site-packages folder of your environment. This folder is in /[anaconda-path]/envs/biobb_dna/lib/python3.7/site-packages, where /[anaconda-path] is usually /anaconda3 or /opt/conda.

cp conda_env/biobb_dna.pth /[anaconda-path]/envs/biobb_dna/lib/python3.7/site-packages

Activate environment

Then, activate the recently created biobb_dna conda environment:

conda activate biobb_dna

Create repository

This template includes some folders not standard for a biobb, such as biobb_dna/adapters/, biobb_dna/notebooks/ or conda_env/. For the sake of having a pure biobb structure, you should uncomment the three last lines of the .gitignore file before creating a new git repository:


Then, inialitize repository:

git init

Binary paths configuration

Additionally, it's recommendable to configure binary paths in your environment in order to ease the command line execution. More info about this subject in the Binary path configuration section of the official documentation.
