David, please stop reposting this question here again and and again, with 
only minor variations. The data you are trying to process is not in CSV 
format, so you have to look elsewhere to preprocess it.

If there are tools available in Python to achieve your goal they may be part 
of biopython, or there may be domain experts on the biopython mailing list

http://biopython.org/wiki/Mailing_lists

who know how to proceed. I recommend that you ask there, but with a few more 
details on what you are trying to achieve so that you don't come across as 
lazy and careless as with your above posting.

Thank you, and good luck.
