Is there any tool that could select variants from .BAM and make a .fasta file?

Hi all! I'm new in these kind of analysis. I need to select several specific regions from a .BAM file and make a .fasta one to do a data base in the future. Is there any tool that could help me?

Thanks Community,

    Not directly from the bam, but if you call variants from your bam file to generate a vcf callset, then you can use the vcf to make a "mutant" fasta. See the reference utilities in the Tool Documentation.
