Wiggelen

Wiggelen is a Python library for working with wiggle tracks (WIG files). It also provides a command line interface to some of its functionality.

The main goal of Wiggelen is to provide light-weight and unified access to wiggle tracks.

>>> import wiggelen
>>> for x in wiggelen.walk(open('test.wig')):
...     print 'chr%s:%d\t%s' % x
...
chr18:34344  629.0
chr18:34345  649.0
chr18:34446  657.0
chrM:308     520.0
chrM:309     519.0
