Publications for Biopython
We use Biopython mainly for standard formats (Genbank/Fasta/AB1) import/export, and for basic restriction/ligation simulations. For more advanced uses we generally need to build a functionality on top of Biopython, or use an existing library that does that.
One downside of Biopython is the presence of many sub-packages from different subdomains of bioinformatics, which makes the library very big and hard to navigate (also hard to fully maintain I imagine).
