I have written some open-source software, some to scratch an itch, and some as part of my research.
Currently Active Projects
NGLess is a domain specific language for Next-Generation Sequencing (NGS) processing, with a focus on metagenomics.

mahotas is a computer vision package for Python. It operates on numpy arrays. It is implemented in C++ as it has a strong efficiency focus.
Jug is a task based framework for running embarassingly parallel code in Python. You can also think of it as a light-weight python-based map-reduce environment.
Imread serves to read and save image files to and from numpy arrays.
I have also made some code available for reproducible research.
These are projects that work but which I am not too interested in pursuing right now, but which I might revive in the future.
Pymorph: Python Morphology Toolbox
This is a Python image morphology toolbox which I have adopted (i.e., taken over maintaining). This works, but I am not adding any more functionality.
Includes basic operations such as - erode - dilate - open - tophat opening - watershed - …
Milk is a Pythonic machine learning toolkit
NGH is an NGS package for Haskell
Hex is a TeX engine in Haskell. It currently does not do much, but it is progressing. The goal is a full reimplementation.
ncreduce: No Copy Reduce Operations for Numpy
This improves on the speed of reduce-type operations in numpy. The code works great for its purpose, and I still resort to it everytime that ndarray.sum shows up in my profiles as a time hog (surprisingly often). However, it is too large (the binary is huge).
I learned a lot about numpy’s internals while doing it and I developed this technique for writing fast clean C++ to work on numpy code.
This used ImageMagick to read images. It has been superceded by imread.
This is the system behind this website. It is a django based content managed system, where all the content is stored on flat text files. I use git to manage those text files and publish on the website.

Bits & Pieces
These are little projects that are helpful, but not part of anything larger.
Parses FASTA files in Python. As a major feature, it correctly handles comments (which many programmes do not). As a major mis-feature, it was one of the first Python classes that I wrote and it shows.
