BioJava Hackathon - Day 3 - Sequence Modules

Another main feature of the Wednesday session is an update to the sequence modules. Scooter Willis extended the sequence-core modules to provide the framework for working with sequences according to what was discussed earlier. There is still room for tweaks, refactoring and future optimizations but for the most part we can represent DNA,RNA and Protein sequences in a biologically aware manner with minimum code complexity at the top level. Check out the biojava3 package in the sequence-core module.
