I am trying to use bedrolls genomecov in order to scale my RNA seq data to reads per million.
I have tried
bedtools genomecov -ibam mybamfile.bam -bg -scale RPM -g mm10.chrom.sizes > myBedGraphfile.BedGraph
which generates a bed graph file with 0 reads across all positions.
I have tried to find documentation on how to use the scale flag but it only seems to provide info on how to scale by a factor such as multiplying all reads by 10.
I'd really appreciate any help with this!
