extract duplicated reads

It would be great if we can extract duplicated reads and check where they fall on the genome.

    Since they're flagged in the BAM file, this isn't too hard. I use samtools for tasks like this: samtools view -f 0x400 -b -o Sample_dupes.bam Sample.bam

    Ah, that's a good idea. Much simpler than writing a new read filter :)
