A fast Python library for VCF files using Cython for speed.

Project description

CyVCF

A Cython port of the PyVCF library maintained by @jamescasbon.

The goal of this project is to provide a very fast Python library for parsing and manipulating large VCF files. Cython has been used to optimize speed. This version is approximately 4 times faster than PyVCF, and the parsing speed is essentially identical to that of C/C++ libraries provided by PLINKSEQ and VCFLIB.

The functionality and interface are currently the same as documented here: http://pyvcf.rtfd.org/

Installation

python setup.py build python setup.py install

Testing

python setup.py test

Basic usage

>>> import cyvcf
>>> vcf_reader = cyvcf.Reader(open('test/example-4.0.vcf', 'rb'))
>>> for record in vcf_reader:
...     print record
