Possible to source and read bam files directly from ftp site into Unified Genotyper?
Is it possible to source and read bam files directly from ftp site into Unified Genotyper without downloading them first. This option works in samtools view -- but if I try the simple straightforward way in GATK (just replacing the -I inputfilename.bam with -I ftplinktobamfile.bam ) it does not work. Is there another way of doing this? This would save me a lot of diskspace if I could do this.
