Biskit is an open source software package written in Python. The package facilitates research in Structural bioinformatics and molecular modelling. Biskit falls into two parts:

  • an Object-oriented programming library for manipulating and analyzing macromolecular structures, Protein complexes and Molecular dynamics trajectories

The Biskit library delegates many calculations to more specialized third-party programs and currently wraps about 15 external applications. Examples are X-PLOR, Hex, T-Coffee, DSSP and MODELLER.

Biskit was originally developed at the Pasteur Institute and the name Biskit refers to the title of the research group: "Unité de BioInformatique Structurale".
