We can try basing this on f5f3463 but I suspect this will be a challenge due to the typical scale. Perhaps a tiny yellow snake is enough?

See also #25.

What I have tried so far:

Just a 'translation' of Biopython:
favicon2 ico_16x16

Trying something Biopython logo-like:
favicon3 ico_16x16

I'm not very satisfied with them... Looking forward to seeing other submissions, maybe we should announce this on the mailing list?

Good idea Markus, yes, please ask on the mailing lists (main and dev). Your text based example is clever, that could work.

Just FYI, here's BioJava's which is just a sample version of their logo:

I couldn't see how BioPerl's is setup with GitHub Pages, probably my browser has cached this? bioperl/bioperl.github.io#35

Do you have vectorized or at least high resolution versions of the biopython logo? I might take a stab, but it would be nice to have some consistency.

Sadly we do not have the original vector art, just a reasonably high resolution bitmap - see http://biopython.org/wiki/Logo and http://biopython.org/DIST/docs/images/biopython.jpg
