another collection of C++ classes for various Bioinformatics
purposes is available at Baylor College:


CompBioTools++ is a collection of C++ classes intended to simplify the
development of complex computational biology
applications. It includes basic functionality to manipulate sequences,
classes to parse common kinds of files, and
implementations of various sequence analysis algorithms.
