1. Introduction

The ComputeGenomeMaskStatistics utility prints the number of alignable and unalignable bases.

See ComputeGenomeMask.

2. Inputs / Arguments

  • -I <mask-file> : The genome mask file. An indexed fasta file containing
    the genome mask. The fasta file must be indexed with samtools faidx or the
    equivalent.

  • -R <fasta-file> : Reference sequence. An indexed fasta file containing
    the reference sequence to mask. The fasta file must be indexed with
    samtools faidx or the equivalent.

3. Outputs

  • -O <mask-file> : Tab-delimited output file containing the number of
    alignable and unalignable bases (per chromosome and total). Default is to
    write to stdout.
