Bamchop: A bioinformatics utility to summarize and visualize exome and other types of targeted resequencing data

Abstract

Targeted resequencing projects can generate massive amount of data in the form of short nucleic acid sequences. These sequences are aligned to a reference genome and stored in BAM (Binary Alignment/Map) files in most cases. A growing challenge for biomédical researchers is to rapidly summarize large BAM files (typically 5 to 25 GB) to evaluate data quality… (More)
