I was reading this article:
- http://www.biomedcentral.com/1471-2105/9/526/abstract

The authors describe a binary format to store SNPs data in a more
efficently way than flat files.

One of the authors, in his blog, says that they have developed some python APIs:

I think this is interesting for our biopython Popgen module.
Maybe we can ask them for collaboration, and we could use such a
format to store SNP data internally or at least provide support for
their format.

What do you think?
