Mindy is the Biopython flat-file indexing system. Currently under development, it uses the Martel parsing technology to read a file and find record boundaries, identifiers, keywords and cross-references. This information is stored in a data system that allows simple queries and fast record retrieval. The final product will also include command-line and web based interfaces as well as HTML output and format conversion methods.

The proof of concept prototype is available. Here is an example of how to use Mindy to first index then search a file in SWISS-PROT format:
% mindy_index.py --format Martel.formats.swissprot38.format \ --dbname swiss --record-tag swissprot38_record \ --identifier entry_name --alias ac_number --progress 100 \ /home/dalke/ftps/swissprot/sprot38.dat % mindy_search --dbname swiss --identifier 100K_RAT ID 100K_RAT STANDARD; PRT; 889 AA.
