BedTool.tabix_intervals(interval_or_string, check_coordinates=False)[source]

Retrieve all intervals within coordinates from a “tabixed” BedTool.

Given either a string in “chrom:start-stop” format, or an interval-like object with chrom, start, stop attributes, return a streaming BedTool of the features in this BedTool that overlap the provided interval.

If the coordinates are invalid, an empty generator is returned unless check_coordinates=True in which case a ValueError will be raised.
