AMOS message reader/writer module for Python


(of interest to bioinformaticians, and few others)

AMOS (A Modular Open-Source Assembler) defines a standard message format for describing DNA sequence assemblies. It has a Perl module for reading these assemblies, but no Python module.

Shock! This must be rectified, forthwith!

I am currently using this module to import Newbler assemblies of 454 data into AMOS. The quality data is thoroughly b0rked. If anyone has any experience with this, please contact me.
