Comment: C: Kallisto pseudobam to IGV
... It is optional, but if you want an accurate header in the BAM you should use the `--chromosomes` flag. I tried running without it, and this resulted in all chromosomes being assigned `LN:536870911` in the header. A **chrom.sizes** file is usually readily available. E.g., simple searching "mm10 ch ...

Technically, [the FASTQ spec includes this possibility](https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC2847217/#__sec7title) (like FASTA), and this could cause simple line counting to also be an inaccurate measure. However, it's con ...
