a python module to read and write phylip alignment files

Project description

About pyphylip

Read and write files in the phylip sequence format.


Because pyphylip has been packaged for pypi, it can be installed using:

$ pip install pyphylip


Decode a phylip sequence file given a source of lines in the file:

>>> with open('infile.phy') as f:
...     headers, sequences = pyphylip.decode(f)

Encode some headers and corresponding sequences as a phylip sequence file:

>>> with open('outfile.phy', 'w') as f:
...     f.write(pyphylip.encode(headers, sequences) + '\n')
