Bio::Gonzales - Speedy functions to manipulate biological data
Biological data analysis is often cumbersome: most tasks are very similar, but still there is a small difference between them. Bio::Gonzales gives you the modules and functions that make data crunching easy and speedy, while keeping the flexibility.
It should not be complete, the focus relies on a few standard formats. If one is burning in format hell, Bio::Perl might be a much better complement.
To outline the simple usage, here an example to read a fasta sequence file into a array of Bio::Gonzales::Seq objects.
use Bio::Gonzales::Seq::IO qw/faslurp/; my @seqs = faslurp('sequences.fa'); # Oh, f**k, somebody sent me gzipped fasta files! # Calm down! Gonzales has a speedy answer for that: my @seqs = faslurp('sequences.fa.gz');
THIS IS THE ALPHA STAGE, SO BEWARE. MY TIMELINE IS TO GET THE DOCUMENTATION DONE TILL MARCH 2013.
Motivation for this package is the lack of speed or ease of use or both in other modules.
