Introducing (and expanding) the Biopython Cookbook

Hi all,

You may have noticed we’re trying out using the wiki for Biopython cookbook entries. It’s a new idea so at the moment there are only a few ‘recipes’ on offer. If you have some tricks you find yourself using time and again to solve a problem why not share them? Similarly, if you find yourself coming up against a problem you can’t seem to solve easily with Biopython’s tools send a message to one of the mailing lists proposing it as a cookbook example and someone just might solve it for you!

There are also several short examples in the main “Biopython Tutorial and Cookbook” (pdf version) which might be worth copying/moving to the wiki. What would you pick from here?

Feedback from Biopython newcomers would be especially valuable! 🙂
