samtools targetcut description

Samtools targetcut identifies target regions by examining the continuity of read depth, computes haploid consensus sequences of targets and outputs a SAM with each sequence corresponding to a target. When option -f is in use, BAQ will be applied. This command is only designed for cutting fosmid clones from fosmid pool sequencing

Parent program: samtools

SAMTools provide various utilities for manipulating alignments in the SAM format, including sorting, merging, indexing and generating alignments in a per-position format. It is very convinient for handling reads mapped to reference genome. Normally SAMtools is used in intermediate step between raw read mapping and SNP or variants callingm, because it allows to effeciently store mapped reads.
