Using biopython for this task is unlikely to be the best approach, can you elaborate why you want to do that?

Yes, but BioPython is not what you want. Alignment of fastq files (NGS sequencing data, is it?) is done with specialized tools such as bwa or bowtie2. Please google for these tools, there are literally hundreds of posts, tutorials and manuals on how to do that. The entire process is called variant calling, there are pipelines for it, please search for these. Something like GATK best practices or bcftools mpileup as good keywords to start with.

So what is the problem, you opened a new question? Feel free to add a comment if you need further help. Did you get stuck somewhere, if so where? There is no need to be ashamed asking for help, but please do not just open identical questions, that only annoys people :)
