Welcome to Japsa’s documentation!

Japsa is a free, open source JAva Package for Sequence Analysis. It contains a range of analysis tools that biologists and bioinformaticians would routinely use but may not be available elsewhere. It also provides a Java library to be incorporated in other Java projects.

The package aims to be lightweight (fast and memory efficient) and to use the least possible dependencies. Its tools have a consistent command line interface and support reading from/writing to streams whenever possible.

Japsa and its source code is licensed under the BSD license and is available on GitHub.
