I have been given access to some bam files that have been compressed to the "ID.bam.spec" file format. I have not worked with this format before and cannot find the necessary code to convert them from .spec to .bam
A former colleague mentioned they used the spec-1.3.2 package to convert from .spec to .bam however, I am unable to find this 'spec' package anywhere.
The code was supposedly: /home/user/spec-1.3.2/spec2bam --in your.bam --out your.bam.spec --ref yourRef.fa.ref
If anyone knows more about the spec file format or can point me in the right direction I would appreciate it.
