Manage FAST5 files with rust.


This crate wraps the most basic functionality of the ONT-FAST5-API for python, but in Rust!


Very much in alpha and a WIP, I worte this for one specific use case that I had.

Currently it is only possible to read and write FAST5. It uses the HDF5 crate to deal with HDF5 files. It does apply the VBZ plugin to the files.
