open_database(driver='MySQLdb', **kwargs)

source code 
Main interface for loading a existing BioSQL-style database.

This function is the easiest way to retrieve a connection to a
database, doing something like:

    >>> from BioSeq import BioSeqDatabase
    >>> server = BioSeqDatabase.open_database(user="root", db="minidb")

the various options are:
driver -> The name of the database driver to use for connecting. The
driver should implement the python DB API. By default, the MySQLdb
driver is used.
user -> the username to connect to the database with.
password, passwd -> the password to connect with
host -> the hostname of the database
database or db -> the name of the database
