BioCore.jl provides core definitions that are common to all or many packages in the BioJulia ecosystem.

It also includes a definition of a common IO interface for IO of Bioinformatics formats in BioJulia packages, and includes some helper functions for generating file parsers from state machine automata with Automa.jl


BioCore is a dependency for other BioJulia packages, but you can install it yourself with:

using Pkg
#Pkg.add("BioCore") for julia prior to v0.7

If you are interested in the cutting edge of the development, please check out the master branch to try new features before release.


BioCore.jl is tested against Julia 0.7 and 1.0.x on Linux, OS X, and Windows.

Financial contributions

We also welcome financial contributions in full transparency on our open collective. Anyone can file an expense. If the expense makes sense for the development of the community, it will be "merged" in the ledger of our open collective by the core contributors and the person who filed the expense will be reimbursed.
