Can I get basic statics of a genome alignment with a BAM index file with samtool or any other tool in linux? Is there a need for BAM file mandatory because I did all tasks in the galaxy and it produces huge data.
I doubt the index contains any of that data.
Yes, don't have. Do I need to download the datasets also? I think I have to step into the galaxy. Could you tell me if I want to get the information about alignment which command will helpful in samtool ?
samtools idxstats your.bam. You will need the aligned/sorted BAM file and index that goes with it.
samtools idxstats your.bam
