Hi, I am generating bcf files from vcf. When indexing using bcftools the default indiexing is .csi however I also have tabix (generates .tbi index files) installed on my system hence I can opt for either. I'd just like to have a brief comparison between the two indexing formats in order to know which one to choose.

Thank you,

Thanks ATpoint. I was hoping to get answers as to whether I should keep two sets of index files.

not in touch with the technical differences but in practice very little (downstream ) software supports the csi one unfortunately
