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');
Motivation for this package is the lack of speed or ease of use or both in other modules. The main branches are grouped into
