Python wrapper for the NCBI C++ Toolkit
The NCBI C++ Toolkit provides a wide variety of functionality for analysis, retrieval, and manipulation of DNA and protein sequences and related data, along with much general-purpose functionality. This includes (de)serialization and manipulation of instances of NCBI data model types (usually defined by ASN.1 specifications).
The C++ Toolkit is the result of the efforts of many people at the National Center for Biotechnology Information over several years. This module makes most of its functionality available from Python.
