- BedTool.tabix(in_place=True, force=False, is_sorted=False)¶
Prepare a BedTool for use with Tabix.
Returns a new BedTool that has been BGZIP compressed and indexed by tabix.
If True (default), then assume the file is already sorted and replace the existing file with the BGZIPed version.
If True (default is False), then overwrite both the index and the BGZIP file.
If True (default is False), then assume the file is already sorted so that BedTool.bgzip() doesn’t have to do that work.
