Hello,

I am using the BAMStats program to calculate the coverage for my BAM file.

I am trying to understand how the Y axis (% of reference) for the "coverage distribution (mapped only)" graph of the BAMStats program is calculated.

If anyone can help me understand, that would be great.

Thanks

Kay

At what level are you wanting to know this? In other words, do you want to know the mathematical details of the calculation algorithm, or rather the general process for calculating this metric?
