An interval tree data structure

Project description


itree is an interval tree data structure based on a self-balancing AVL binary search tree tree. Suitable for use with sequence features in bioinformatics.

Getting Started

  • Construction

Creating an interval tree object:

>>> import itree
>>> t = itree.ITree()
  • Insertion

Any item inserted into an interval tree must contain "start" and "end" attributes as integers.

>>> import collections
>>> i = collections.namedtuple('MyInterval', ['start','end'])
>>> t.insert(i(1,15))
>>> t.insert(i(3,20))
>>> t.insert(i(4,20))
>>> t.insert(i(5,15))
>>> t.insert(i(6,7))
  • Search

Search for all intervals overlapping a given interval

[MyInterval(start=3, end=20), MyInterval(start=4, end=20), MyInterval(start=1, end=15)]
  • Removal

Remove an interval exactly matching the given interval by its start and end attributes (but not necessarily the same object).

>>> t.pstring()

>>> t.remove(i(1,15))
>>> t.pstring()

The pstring method is mostly for debugging, but here we illustrate the rebalancing of the tree.
