Rust-Bio, a bioinformatics library for Rust.

This library provides implementations of many algorithms and data structures that are useful for bioinformatics. All provided implementations are rigorously tested via continuous integration.

Please see the homepage for examples and documentation.

Currently, rust-bio provides

  • most major pattern matching algorithms,
  • a convenient alphabet implementation,
  • pairwise alignment,
  • suffix arrays,
  • BWT and FM-Index,
  • FMD-Index for finding supermaximal exact matches,
  • a q-gram index,
  • utilities to work with PSSMs,
  • an orf research algorithm,
  • a rank/select data structure,
  • serde support for all data structures when built with nightly feature,
  • FASTQ and FASTA and BED readers and writers,
  • helper functions for combinatorics and dealing with log probabilities.

For reading and writing BAM and BCF files, have a look at https://github.com/christopher-schroeder/rust-htslib.
