Hi everyone,

I am trying to convert a 5.34 GB BigWig file to a BedGraph file using the bigWigToBedGraph tool for ucsc. Does anyone know how large the output file will be? Any help will be much appreciated.

Thank you Pierre,

I just ran the code and its output is 53195893894. I am not sure what this number means. Is it the number of characters, rows or mbs?
