I am trying to use VG effectively as a genome compression tool for collections of highly related genomes. A key component of this is that I need to be able to randomly access subregions of an input genome, or path. How can this be accomplished with VG?
So far, as a test case, I have built a graph out of a few sequences, converted it to a sorted XG format file, and have found that I can use
vg find -p to select a subset of the graph, but how can I convert this back to a linear sequence?
