Summary: We present Rust-Bio, the first general purpose bioinformatics library for the innovative Rust programming language. Rust-Bio leverages the unique combination of speed, memory safety and high-level syntax offered by Rust to provide a fast and safe set of bioinformatics algorithms and data structures with a focus on sequence analysis.
Availability and implementation: Rust-Bio is available open source under the MIT license at https://rust-bio.github.io.
Supplementary information: Supplementary data are available at Bioinformatics online.
