  Description     : tools for comparing DNA sequences with MinHash sketches

 Compute MinHash signatures for nucleotide (DNA/RNA) and protein sequences.
 MinHash sketches provide a lightweight way to store “signatures” of large DNA
 or RNA sequence collections, and then compare or search them using a Jaccard
 index. MinHash sketches can be used to identify samples, find similar samples,
 identify data sets with shared sequences, and build phylogenetic trees
 (Ondov et al. 2015).
 sourmash provides a command line script, a Python library, and a CPython
 module for MinHash sketches
