......

I rename my xls file to bed, then I zip the file with this command

bgzip gen.bed

and when I try to tabbix I get this error message

tabix -p bed gen.bed.gz
[E::get_intv] failed to parse TBX_GENERIC, was wrong -p [type] used?
The offending line was: "��ࡱ�"
Segmentation fault (core dumped)

what I do wrong?

Thanks!

I think you saved your file as a native excel file. (show me the output of

$ file gen.bed

) There is no magic: nothing is changed by just hanging the suffix for xls to bed .

Sort on chr/start, export the file as CSV/TSV using tab as delimiter and no "escape string". Change the suffix from csv to bed. compress with bgzip and index with tabix.

Make sure you save the file as tab-delimited text out of Excel (which would make it BED format). You can't use xls formatted file as is.
