  • Rust-Bio

    This library provides implementations of many algorithms and data structures that are useful for bioinformatics. All provided implementations are rigorously tested via continuous integration.

    I would start with the book and then rust-bio library. Rust is a pretty low level language compared to R/Python. It’s an especially good fit for writing efficient tools that make use of the kinds of algorithms / data structures that are implemented in rust-bio.
