  • indexed bam file

    What is exactly an indexed bam file?
    I already have a bam file AND a bai file. Is this already an indexed bam file? I could successfully load it into IGV but did not manage to do with Tablet

    The .bai file is the index to your bam file.

      Yes I know but I can only load the bam file into tablet and not the index file

        As far as I know the index file is used to programmatically read the locations in your bam more efficiently, its not a separate entity.

          Generally you just need to keep the .bai file in the same directory as the bam file and any program that needs it will read it automatically.

            Exploring the Dynamics of the Tumor Microenvironment
            by seqadmin




            The complexity of cancer is clearly demonstrated in the diverse ecosystem of the tumor microenvironment (TME). The TME is made up of numerous cell types and its development begins with the changes that happen during oncogenesis. “Genomic mutations, copy number changes, epigenetic alterations, and alternative gene expression occur to varying degrees within the affected tumor cells,” explained Andrea O’Hara, Ph.D., Strategic Technical Specialist at Azenta. “As...

            Exploring Human Diversity Through Large-Scale Omics
            by seqadmin


            In 2003, researchers from the Human Genome Project (HGP) announced the most comprehensive genome to date1. Although the genome wasn’t fully completed until nearly 20 years later2, numerous large-scale projects, such as the International HapMap Project and 1000 Genomes Project, continued the HGP's work, capturing extensive variation and genomic diversity within humans. Recently, newer initiatives have significantly increased in scale and expanded beyond genomics, offering a more detailed...
