I'm working on Biopython for Google summer of code; my project is to create
an interface between Biopython and various existing tools for handling
sequence variants (including VCF format).
I am seeking feedback from variant users. What could my interface offer
that would make it easier to use variants with Biopython? For example, I am
planning on a function that will essentially skim through a large file to
give a general overview of its contents. More specifically, in what ways
should variant data be able to interact with existing parts of Biopython
(such as SeqFeature, SeqRecord)?
Looking forward to any thoughts you share.
