Biopython tip

Installing Biopython on CentOS is easy. You need the following:

If haven't already done so install this (rather large) package. It loosely corresponds to what I was used to in Ubuntu as "build-essential":

yum groupinstall 'Development Tools'

You  also need this package, or it won't compile (it's not included in "Development Tools):

yum install python-devel

# Now the fun stuff:
tar xf biopython-1.59.tar.gz
cd biopython-1.59
python build
python test
python install

Happy biopython'ing!
