I use bx-python for reading local bigWig files, but I don't believe it works on remote files like
bigWigSummary from kentsrc does, e.g.,
bigWigSummary <http://file.bigWig> chr1 1 100000 10
I suppose one option would be to loosely wrap
bigWigSummary, but does anyone know of an existing way of accessing bigWigs remotely with Python?
