pep is a python package for handling Portable Encapsulated Projects. Portable Encapsulated Projects is a standardized format for describing sample-intensive project metadata.
pep provides a python interface to this format.
If you define your project using standard PEP format, you can use the
pep package to instantiate an in-memory representation of your project and all of its samples. You can then use this for interactive analysis, or to develop a novel python tool based on pep so you don’t have to handle sample processing.
