Description : generic indexer for TAB-delimited genome position files
Tabix indexes files where some columns indicate sequence coordinates: name
(usually a chromosme), start and stop. The input data file must be position
sorted and compressed by bgzip (provided in this package), which has a gzip
like interface. After indexing, tabix is able to quickly retrieve data lines by
chromosomal coordinates. Fast data retrieval also works over network if an URI
is given as a file name.
A draft package is available here:
I update the draft from time to time when I use it at work, and will
eventually upload it ‘when it is ready’.
Do not hesitate to express your interest in it, and I will fast-track it.
Have a nice day,
