... for Biskit developers.
This Documentation is yet very incomplete. By contrast, the Biskit source code consist to about 30 % of doc strings and comments. Most modules have moreover quite instructive unit test cases...

If you want to familiarize yourself with Biskit, please first read the Quick overview, then you could inspect 'using PDBModel' and browse over the tutorial for getting a taste of the further possibilities. The end-user scripts in biskit/scripts give some good examples for using the library. From there you can poke through the source code of the different classes. Last not least, feel free to contact us with any question or suggestion!
