Can I use htsjdk Java plugin to return a byte range of a requested chromosome on a .bam/.sam file?
I've read through this documentation: https://samtools.github.io/hts-specs/SAMv1.pdf
From my very rough understanding, the index file requests information from the .bam file by using requesting the bin.
I'm attempting to request a partial file from Google Drive, the only way I can do this is to tell the Drive api a byte range that I want. Is there anything in the htsjdk library that can provide this? Is there any way that I can get a bin number, and somehow get a byte range from that?
