Hi all,

I started a new project named BioPythonGUI for a few of days. The following
is the 'About' page from BioPythonGUI project.

BioPythonGUI is a Graphical User Interface of BioPython.

BioPython is a widely used python module set in bioinformatics. It help

  - Parsing files in di fferent database formats
  - Interfaces into programs like Blast, Entrez and PubMed
  - A sequence class (can transcribe, translate, invert, etc)
  - Code for handling alignments of sequences
  - Clustering algorithms
  - etc.

However, it's not everyone can use the BioPython, especially ones who do not
know much about the programming. How can you expect a professor who never
known about any programming to use BioPython to parse the BLAST report file?
This is the problem which the BioPythonGUI would solve. I started the
project with the goal "Everyone can use BioPython with BioPythonGUI".

Until now, there are two modules SeqGUI and BlastGUI are available in
BioPythonGUI. I would greatly appreciate if you use BioPythonGUI and send me
the feedback.
Please see the developer's blog for details.
