Bug#606446: ITP: tabix -- generic indexer for TAB-delimited genome position files

Package: wnpp
Severity: wishlist
Owner: Charles Plessy <plessy@debian.org>

  Package name    : tabix
  Version         : 0.2.3
  Upstream Author : Heng Li <lh3@live.co.uk>
  URL             : http://samtools.sourceforge.net/tabix.shtml
  License         : MIT/X
  Programming Lang: C, plus some Java, python and Perl bindings
  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:

  Vcs-Git: git://git.debian.org/debian-med/tabix.git
  Vcs-Browser: http://git.debian.org/?p=debian-med/tabix.git;a=summary

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,
