Xbbtools is a Graphical Sequence Editor originally written in Tcl/Tk with
BioWish. This is the start of a pure python re-implementation of xbbtools with
Usage: xbbtools test.fas

Whats available:
      * open FASTA file
      * display 1 or 6 frame translations ala DNA Strider
      * all operations work on selection or complete sequence
      * displays start, stop, length and composition of selection
      * complement and reverse operations
      * change genetic code 
      * very simple blast run menus

      * I'm waiting for a biopython modules for
	    - reading and writing different sequence formats
	    - spawning external programs/searches e.g. blast
	      without freezing the whole Tk mainloop
      * implement biowish's ORF Displayer
      * add Pyphy's database grabber tool
      * speedup DNA seq operations suitable for complete genomes
      * add windows support (shudder)
========== is a python re-implementation of the Tcl script nextorf.tcl
used together with xbbtools for ORF-fishing during the Complete Genome
Sequencing Project of the Typhus Bacteria Rickettsia Prowazekii developed
by Thomas Sicheritz-Ponten, Jan Andersson an Morten Andersen

Usage: testrp.fas
    or -h

Feel free to suggest, fix and hack
 ... have fun
