Hi Harsh Beria,

One option is to work on pairwise sequence alignments. Currently there is some code for that in Biopython (in Bio/pairwise2.py), but it is not general and is not being maintained. This may need to be rebuilt from the ground up.

 I am a Harsh Beria, third year UG student at Indian
 Institute of
 Technology, Kharagpur. I have started working in
 Computational Biophysics
 recently, having written code for pdb to fasta parser,
 sequence alignment
 using Needleman Wunch and Smith Waterman, Secondary
 Structure prediction,
 Henikoff's weight and am currently working on Monte Carlo
 Overall, I have started to like this field and want to carry
 my interest
 forward by pursuing a relevant project for GSOC 2014. I
 mainly code in C
 and python and would like to start contributing to the
 Biopython library. I
 started going through the official contribution wiki page (
 I also went through the wiki page of Bio.SeqlO's. I
 seriously want to
 contribute to the Biopython library through GSOC. What do I
 do next ?
