Issue #2351 has been updated by Peter Cock.

An open question is now that we have Python 3, is should it be a subclass of a (unicode) string, or a bytes object? I presume string.

Before (or at the same time) as any change to the base class, we need to change Seq equality. We've have warnings in place that we're planning to change from id(object) to str(object), maybe now is the time?

Bug #2351: Make Seq more like a string, even subclass string?

Author: Peter Cock
Status: New
Priority: Normal
Assignee: Biopython Dev Mailing List
Category: Main Distribution
Target version: Not Applicable

We've started talking on the mailing list about making the SeqRecord class a subclass of the Seq object, and making that a subclass of the Python string.

This bug is for holding patches - I suspect a lot of the discussion will continueon the mailing lists rather than here.

I explicitly have left the "assign to" field pointing at the dev mailinglist.
