This lesson covers the most commonly used filetypes, and gives users enough information to understand what a filetype is, what type of data it contains, and what software or tools are used with it.

In sections where handling BED files and file format conversion, just a note that BEDOPS provides tools to do both.

Nice resource. To add to this, UCSC has brief information about different file formats: https://genome.ucsc.edu/FAQ/FAQformat.html
