Hope all of you are doing good :)

This is a two part question,

  1. I get the following error when trying to use hg38 to plot my bam files.

The final snapshots are done using hg19 since hg38 was not located. My question here is, is the IGV version of hg38 genome available for download? If so, where? If not, what's the alternative?

  1. How to change the track color of the coverage in IGV while using batch script? Suppose I have 4 cases and 4 controls, I want the coverage of cases to be red and controls to be blue. I know there is the colorby option as one of the batch command, but little is given about how to use it effectively.

I'll be glad if somebody can help me out with these problems. Have a lovely day.

Cheers, Uday

If you open IGV (graphical interface) then you should be able to select GRCh38/hg38 from the genome downloads. That should download necessary files for hg38 and cache them. There may be a way to do this on the command line but above should work.

You appear to be using an old version of IGV (3 yr?). You may want to upgrade.

Thanks GenoMax :)

I copied the hg38.genome file that came with IGV when installed in my workstation to the genome folder of IGV on the server and it worked.

Any idea about how one could change the color of the track coverage?

I did use Automatic IGV snapshot script but I didn't find any information on how one could write a batch script to automate IGV snapshot to get a plot something like this :
