Biskit is a modular, object-oriented Python module for structural bioinformatics research. It facilitates the manipulation and analysis of macromolecular structures, protein complexes, and molecular dynamics trajectories. For efficient number crunching, Biskit objects tightly integrate with numpy.
Biskit also offers a platform for the rapid integration of external programs and new algorithms into complex workflows. Calculations are thus often delegated to established programs like Xplor, Amber, Hex, Prosa, Fold-X, T-Coffee, Hmmer and Modeller; interfaces to further software can be added easily.
