I've said some mean things about BioPython in the past -- that it's broken, that it's crufty, etc. One prominent former BioPython developer responded with the very reasonable question of why I wasn't fixing it, if it was so broken. The answer, of course, is that I've been working on my PhD, and for some very sound reasons I didn't want to put in the effort yet.
Luckily Gavin Crooks was under no such constraint, and he put together corebio. This last week, he and I and some other local bioinformaticians connected, and we're going to try to turn corebio into a replacement for some of the core functionality of BioPython.
If you're a Python programmer who is into bioinformatics, we'd love to have you. please contact me or Gavin Crooks to join the corebio mailing list. The more the merrier!

Let's see if this comment goes through. Cool to see corebio using Google Code BTW.
