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.
