Sequence Analysis and Management (SAM)
We also submit raw sequencing data to the EBI on behalf of the research groups.
CRAM is a more highly compressed alternative to the BAM and SAM DNA sequence alignment file formats.
SAMtools / BCFtools / HTSlib
SAMtools, BCFtools. and HTSlib are tools for manipulating sequence alignment (SAM, BAM, CRAM) and variant call (VCF and BCF) files.
Scramble is a DNA sequencing file format conversion tool included as part of the Staden io_lib package.
