BioJava is an open-source project dedicated to providing a Java framework
for processing biological data. It includes objects for manipulating
sequences, file parsers, DAS client and server support, access to BioSQL
and Ensembl databases, and powerful analysis and statistical routines
including a dynamic programming toolkit.
BioJava is provided by a vibrant community which meets annually at
the Bioinformatics Open Source Conference (BOSC) that traditionally
accompanies the Intelligent Systems in Molecular Biology (ISMB)
meeting. Much like BioPerl, the employment of this library is valuable
for everybody active in the field because of the many tricks of the
trade one learns just by communicating on the mailing list.
This is a wrapper package which should enable smooth upgrades to new
