CreateSequenceDictionary creates a sequence dictionary for a reference sequence. This tool creates a sequence dictionary file (with .dict extension) from a reference sequence provided in FASTA format, which is required by many processing and analysis tools. The output file contains a header but no SAMRecords, and the header contains only sequence records.
Parent program: PICARD
Picard is a set of utilities that manipulate SAM files, and a Java API (HTSJDK) for creating new programs that read and write SAM files. Both SAM text format and SAM binary (BAM) format are supported.
