Hi, I made a Tag Directory (using HOMER's makeTagDirectory) from a BAM file. When I compared the tagInfo.txt to the statistics of the BAM file (first sorted the file using samtools sort and then samtools stats) the numbers don't match: in the BAM the 'reads mapped' are 3273271 and in the Tag Directory the 'total tags' are 1454419.5. I thought tags and reads were equivalent terms used for different formats, but in that case the total tags number shouldn't have decimals. I would appreciate some information on what tags are exactly and how they are determined (couldn't find it in the manual). Thanks!
Question: Are tags the same as reads
