New to BioPython? Check out the Getting Started page, or follow one of the links below.
- Installation instructions cover the installation of Python itself, the Biopython dependencies, and Biopython itself.
- The Biopython Tutorial and Cookbook contains the bulk of Biopython documentation. It provides information to get you started with Biopython, in addition to specific documentation on a number of modules.
- API documentation for Biopython modules is generated directly from source code comments using Epydoc.
- Wiki documentation,
- Documentation for the Biopython interfaces to BioSQL cover installing Python database adaptors and basic usage of BioSQL.
- Documentation for the cluster module in Biopython. This describes the underlying C library and the Python interface.
- Cookbook-style documentation:
- Cookbook documentation (on the wiki)
- The Biopython Structural Bioinformatics FAQ (i.e. how to use the Bio.PDB module).
- Working with restriction enzymes.
