Bug#629597: ITP: bedtools -- suite of utilities for comparing genomic features

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

  Package name    : bedtools
  Version         : 2.12.0
  Upstream Author : Aaron Quinlan
  URL             : http://code.google.com/p/bedtools/
  License         : GPL-2+
  Programming Lang: C++
  Description     : suite of utilities for comparing genomic features

 The BEDTools utilities allow one to address common genomics tasks such as
 finding feature overlaps and computing coverage. The utilities are largely
 based on four widely-used file formats: BED, GFF/GTF, VCF, and SAM/BAM. Using
 BEDTools, one can develop sophisticated pipelines that answer complicated
 research questions by streaming several BEDTools together.

BEDTools is very popular in its field and will be a nice addition to Debian.  A
package is almost ready at http://git.debian.org/?p=debian-med/bedtools.git

Have a nice day,
