SeqSift is a python package for vetting, manipulating, and converting molecular sequence data.
The package is written by Jamie Oaks of the University of Kansas Department of Ecology and Evolutionary Biology.
SeqSift has only been tested on version 2.7 of Python.
It requires the Biopython: http://biopython.org/wiki/Biopython
Some components of Biopython require NumPy (http://numpy.scipy.org). However, none of the Biopython code currently used by SeqSift requires NumPy. Thus, SeqSift will work if you intall Biopython without NumPy.
You should have Python 2.7 and Biopython installed.
Clone Git repository and install using:
$ git clone git://github.com/joaks1/SeqSift.git $ cd SeqSift $ python setup.py install
If the install fails due to a permission error, try:
$ sudo python setup.py install
To run the test suite, use:
$ python setup.py test
If you plan to develop the code, install via:
$ python setup.py develop
Please cite the Biopython library upon which SeqSift depends.
