Hello! I'm new to Biojs. I am willing to contribute to Biojs. I am comfortable with javascript and its various other variants. Currently I'm going through the code on the Github repository. Because the codebase is so large, I am still a bit confused as to how it is organised. It would be great if someone could describe it in short and advice me where to start. It would be a great help. Thanks!

Hey Vikram - fancy seeing you here ;)
Good questions - I'll dig up an overview document for you
But also check out this issue biojs/organisation#16
Bugfixes are always a good way to start to dive a bit deeper into the code base
The overview document is in Issue 3 : biojs/organisation#3
The first two comments give a bit of an overview of biojs
But we should probably move that to a more central place

@rowlandm Thanks for providing the overview link. I'll go through it once and then look at the code again. :)
