Supports querying records with JMESPath.


pip install biopython-convert


conda install biopython-convert


git clone
cd BioPython-Convert
./ install


biopython.convert [-s] [-v] [-i] [-q JMESPath] input_file input_type output_file output_type
    -s Split records into seperate files
    -q JMESPath to select records. Must return list of SeqIO records or mappings. Root is list of input SeqIO records.
    -i Print out details of records during conversion
    -v Print version and exit
Supported formats
abi, abi-trim, ace, cif-atom, cif-seqres, clustal, embl, fasta, fasta-2line, fastq-sanger, fastq, fastq-solexa, fastq-illumina, genbank, gb, ig, imgt, nexus, pdb-seqres, pdb-atom, phd, phylip, pir, seqxml, sff, sff-trim, stockholm, swiss, tab, qual, uniprot-xml, gff3


The root node for a query is a list of SeqRecord objects. The query can return a list with a subset of these or a mapping, keying to the constructor parameters of a SeqRecord object.


Append a new record:

[@, [{`seq`: `AAAA`, `name`: `my_new_record`}]] | []

Filter out any plasmids:


Keep only the first record:
