Mothur and Python

Hello mothur community,

In case it is of use to anyone else, I have built a Python (Python 3 only) wrapper for mothur called mothur-py. This wrapper was inspired by the ipython-mothurmagic plugin for the Jupyter (nee IPython) notebook, but with the aim of providing a more general use python wrapper that could work in any python interpreter, and one that supports mothur’s current keyword functionality.

Mothur-py is designed to be OS independent and work with the latest version of mothur, v1.39.5 (although should work with some older versions as well).
