IndexFeatureFile

Creates an index for a feature file, e.g. VCF or BED file.

Category Other


Overview

This tool creates an index file for the various kinds of feature-containing files supported by GATK (such as VCF and BED files). An index allows querying features by a genomic interval.

Usage example

 gatk IndexFeatureFile \
     -F cohort.vcf.gz
 
This produces the corresponding index, cohort.vcf.gz.tbi.
