Samtools provides a function "faidx" (FAsta InDeX), which creates a small flat index file ".fai" allowing for fast random access to any subsequence in the indexed FASTA file, while loading a minimal amount of the file in to memory. This Python module implements pure Python classes for indexing, retrieval, and in-place modification of FASTA files using a samtools compatible index. The pyfaidx module is API compatible with the pygr seqdb module. A command-line script "faidx" is installed alongside the pyfaidx module, and facilitates complex manipulation of FASTA files without any programming knowledge. This package provides the Python 2 modules to access fasta files.
