Merged BAM File
A set of BAM files can now be loaded merged into a single track. If each file contains different Sample or Read Group tags, as specified in the SAM/BAM file format, then the merged track can be sorted by these to differentiate the origins of reads to these files within a single track.
Create a text file containing a list of the BAM files you want to load, listed by either file path or URL. IGV will load all the BAM files as a single track.
If IGV gives an error "Error loading.... Cannot find reader for alignment file" see here.
Required Extension: .bam.list
