I looked at the tutorial documentation for the new Bio.SeqIO. Generally 
it looks good to me, so I just have a few small issues:

Section 2.4 is titled "Parsing biological file formats". This used to be 
appropriate, as the original version of this section described 
Biopython's parsers in more general terms. Since now it's about 
Bio.SeqIO, it may be better to rename it to make explicit that it is 
about parsing sequence files.

Last sentence of section 2.4.2: "record.id" should be "seq_record.id".

In section 2.4.4: "built python function list" should be "built-in 
python function list"

Last sentence of section 2.4.5: "Not to complicated" should be "Not too 

And finally, "lets" in various places should be "let's".

That's all, it looks very fine otherwise. Thanks!
