BioKit is a set of tools gathered from several other Python packages. The goal is to gather tools that should be useful to develop computational biology software. Biokit contains a few plotting tools (viz module), some statistical analysis (mixture model), some tools to access to Taxon and GO identifier, some basic tools to manipulate sequences and so on. It is linked to BioServices package to provide access to biological resources. Lots of biological software are developed in R. We have also added a module to ease the installation and usage of R tools within BioKit.

WARNING: This package is maintained and used in production but its contents are moving slowly to another project called sequana ( (.e.g mixture model from biokit.stats and biokit.viz will most probably be moved in the current of 2021-2022).


pip install biokit

or from bioconda:

conda install bioconda
