BioJava is a widely used library for processing of biological data. It is used in teaching for the demonstration of solutions to common bioinformatics problems. It provides analytical and statistical routines, contains parsers for common file formats, and allows the manipulation of biological sequences and structures.
Under my leadership we authored 2 publications that currently have more than 170 citations. We also migrated the project to GitHub where it is flourishing with an active developer base.
