SAMtools

  • Description

    (Sequence Alignment/Map) a generic format for storing large nucleotide sequence alignments that provides various utilities for manipulating alignments, including sorting, merging, indexing and generating alignments in a per-position format.

  • Usage Notes

    New samtools versions occasionally provide new features, remove older features or change options.

    New versions of samtools are always made the default version in BioGrids/SBGrid.

    For this reason, samtools versions should be explicitly set with a BioGrids/SBGrid version variable:

    export SAMTOOLS=1.15

    This ensures your workflows will continue to use the same version of samtools.
