a simple question
a simple, very simple question, for visualization of a specific region in IGV.
I would like to extract a specific region of a BAM file, that works fine with :
samtools view -h file.MD.bam chr7:152118000-152474000 > file.MD.region.bam
now in order to visualize the file "file.MD.region.bam " in IGV, it needs an index.
or the command : "samtools index file.MD.region.bam " does not produce anything ...
please could you advise, what am I doing wrong ? many thanks,
