Is there a way to tabix a text file and use it for quick retrieval of records?
I have these fields in a text file
#CHR START STOP GENE
I would like to retrieve the records based on chr:start-pos.
My sample file [sample.txt] has this data
chr1 11873 14361 A
chr1 14469 29370 B
chr1 34610 36081 C
chr1 69090 70008 D
chr1 134772 140566 E
chr1 323891 328581 F
chr1 367658 368597 G
I bgzipped it to get sample.txt.gz file
I tabixed with the following command
tabix -b 1 -e 3 -S 0 -0 sample.txt.gz and this is the error i encountered
[get_intv] the following line cannot be parsed and skipped: chr1 11873 14361 A
[ti_index_core] the indexes overlap or are out of bounds
Any ideas on how to tabix a text file??
