The Variant Call Format (VCF) specifies the format of a text file used
in bioinformatics for storing gene sequence variations. The format has
been developed with the advent of large-scale genotyping and DNA
sequencing projects, such as the 1000 Genomes Project.
The intent of this module is to mimic the ``csv`` module in the Python
stdlib, as opposed to more flexible serialization formats like JSON or
YAML. ``vcf`` will attempt to parse the content of each record based on
the data types specified in the meta-information lines -- specifically
the ##INFO and
##FORMAT lines. If these lines are missing or incomplete, it will check
against the reserved types mentioned in the spec. Failing that, it will
just return strings.
This package provides the Python 2 modules.
