Bio.GenBank.utils module

Useful utilities for helping in parsing GenBank files.

class Bio.GenBank.utils.FeatureValueCleaner(to_process=['translation'])

Bases: object

Provide specialized capabilities for cleaning up values in features.

This class is designed to provide a mechanism to clean up and process values in the key/value pairs of GenBank features. This is useful because in cases like:


you’ll end up with a value with 012s and spaces in it like:

"MED\012 YDPWEL..."

which you probably don’t want.

This cleaning needs to be done on a case by case basis since it is impossible to interpret whether you should be concatenating everything (as in translations), or combining things with spaces (as might be the case with /notes).

keys_to_process = ['translation']
__init__(self, to_process=['translation'])

Initialize with the keys we should deal with.

clean_value(self, key_name, value)

Clean the specified value and return it.

If the value is not specified to be dealt with, the original value will be returned.
