Hi Cyrus,

I agree with David on the PEP8 issue.  A very nice tool to use is the
pep8 checker, https://pypi.python.org/pypi/pep8

I see that you use MSAProbs.  I have an MSAProbs application wrapper in
the works.  I haven't submitted it yet due to incomplete unit tests,
but maybe it's useful to you:
