pybedtools.bedtool.BedTool.bedpe_to_bam

BedTool.bedpe_to_bam(*args, **kwargs)[source]

Wraps bedtools bedpetobam.

For convenience, the file or stream this BedTool points to is implicitly passed as the -i argument to bedpeToBam

There are two alternatives for supplying a genome. Use g="genome.filename" if you have a genome’s chrom sizes saved as a file. This is the what BEDTools expects when using it from the command line. Alternatively, use the genome="assembly.name" (for example, genome="hg19") to use chrom sizes for that assembly without having to manage a separate file. The genome argument triggers a call pybedtools.chromsizes, so see that method for more details.
