Written in Applescript, FASTApple is a suite of utilities for the average computational biologist that make working with FASTA files fast and easy. A basic and straightforward GUI makes choosing files a cinch.

Currently three utilities are included:

FASTA Concatenater combines multiple FASTA files into a single FASTA file.

FASTA Gene Concatenater strings the DNA sequences of each taxon in a set of pre-aligned FASTA files with identical taxa. Specifically designed to prepare RAxML analyses, it conveniently creates a partition file in addition to the concatenated file.

GenBank Renamer automatically renames the taxa in a FASTA file downloaded from GenBank in the format Genus_species_accession

Is your CI/CD pipeline a hodge-podge of randomly connected tools?

Gartner’s Recommendations for DevOps Pipeline Success Icon
You’ve likely added a tool to fix one problem and then a different tool to fix another problem. Pretty soon you have multiple instances of the same tool, different tools with overlapping functionality, no ability to collaborate across teams—all resulting in unknown bottlenecks and complicated or no reporting. As a DevOps leader, it’s up to you to balance the autonomy and flexibility of a DevOps approach. But how?
