Python tools for Synthetic Biology.

Project description


Build Status Binder

SynBiopython provides generic tools for Synthetic Biology. For more details, please see the publication:

SynBiopython: an open-source software library for Synthetic Biology, Jing Wui Yeoh, Neil Swainston, Peter Vegh, Valentin Zulkower, Pablo Carbonell, Maciej B Holowko, Gopal Peddinti, Chueh Loo Poh. Synthetic Biology (2021) ysab001


pip install synbiopython

To install the latest version from Github:

pip install git+

Currently Python 3.6, 3.7 and 3.8 are supported.


You should now be able to run this in Python:

import synbiopython

Currently, there are three modules implemented:

  • The genbabel module provides standard file parsers and for working with multiple fileformats.
  • The codon module provides support for codon optimisation.
  • The lab automation module enables working with plates and generation of picklists (transfers) for liquid handlers.


Example Jupyter notebooks are provided for each module: codon, genbabel and lab automation. In order to open these notebooks, download and install JupyterLab.


SynBiopython is developed collectively by members of the Global Biofoundry Alliance and released on Github under the MIT license. Contributions are welcome!
