Computational biology requires the reading and comprehension of biological data files. Plain-text formats such as SAM, VCF, GTF, PDB and FASTA, often contain critical information that is obfuscated by the complexity of the data structures. bioSyntax (http://bioSyntax.org) is a freely available suite of syntax highlighting packages for vim, gedit, Sublime, and less, which aids computational scientists to parse and work with their data more efficiently.
