Syntax highlighting for computational biology to bring you intuitively close to your data.

Support in vim, less, sublime3 & gedit for .sam, .flagstat, .vcf, .fasta, .fastq, .faidx, .clustal, .pdb, .gtf, .bed files & more.

We'd like to know how bioSyntax can be developed to help your workflow. Tell us what you think! (~5m)


bioSyntax integrates seamlessly with your text editor, recognizing data-type by the file extension or streamed into less.
