About pyGATB

pyGATB is a Python3 wrapper for the GATB-Core library.

The current release of pyGATB gives access to the following GATB-Core components:

  • Bank: the class that enables to load Fasta and Fastaq files
  • Sequence: the class that holds a sequence (ID, letters, quality)
  • Graph: the class that holds the De Bruijn graph
  • Node: the class that makes graph's nodes

Using that API you can start prototyping algorithms:

  • read a sequence file (Bank): FastA, FastQ (plain text or gzipped)
  • or read a set of files (still using the same Bank!)
  • convert that Bank to a De Bruijn graph (Graph)
  • navigate through the Graph (Node)

all of that directly using the Python Programming Language.


Jump to the wiki to review how to install, use and make pyGATB Python3 compliant codes.
