Abstract

Summary: Robust, flexible and fast software to read, write and manipulate macromolecular structures is a prerequisite for productively doing structural bioinformatics. We present BioStructures.jl, the first dedicated package in the Julia programming language for dealing with macromolecular structures and the Protein Data Bank. BioStructures.jl builds on the lessons learned with similar packages to provide a large feature set, a flexible object representation and high performance. Availability and implementation: BioStructures.jl is freely available under the MIT license. Source code and documentation are available at https://github.com/BioJulia/BioStructures.jl. BioStructures.jl is compatible with Julia versions 0.6 and later and is system-independent.
