SeqAn - The Library for Sequence Analysis

What Is SeqAn?

SeqAn is an open source C++ library of efficient algorithms and data structures for the analysis of sequences with the focus on biological data. Our library applies a unique generic design that guarantees high performance, generality, extensibility, and integration with other libraries. SeqAn is easy to use and simplifies the development of new software tools with a minimal loss of performance.

License

The SeqAn library itself, the tests and demos are licensed under the very permissing 3-clause BSD License. The licenses for the applications themselves can be found in the LICENSE files.
