Library to compare DNA sequences (diff, common blocks, etc.)

Project description

Travis CI build status

GeneBlocks is a Python library to compare DNA sequences. It can be used to:

  • Find common blocks in a group of DNA sequences, to factorize them (e.g. only analyze or synthetize each common block once)
  • Highlight differences between sequences (insertions, deletions, mutations)
  • Transfer Genbank features from one record to another sharing similar subsequences.

At the Edinburgh Genome Foundry, we use GeneBlocks to optimize sequence assembly, explore sets of non-annotated sequences, or visualize the differences between different versions of a sequence, and re-annotate records coming from third parties such as DNA manufacturers.

pip install geneblocks
