Get short reads back from a BAM file with options for compression, splitting of forward and reverse reads, etc.
A basic run of this program is as follows:
anvi-get-short-reads-from-bam -o path/to/output \ BAM_FILE_1.bam BAM_FILE_2.bam
This will get all of the short reads out of the provided bam files (
BAM_FILE_2.bam) and put them into a single file.
Narrowing the input
Changing the output format
You can split the output based on the directionality of paired-end reads. Adding the tag
--split-R1-and-R2 causes the program to create three separate output files: one for R1 (sequences in the forward direction), one for R2 (sequences in the reverse direction; i.e. reverse complement of R1 sequences), and one for unparied reads. When doing this, you can name these three files with a prefix by using the flag
anvi-get-short-reads-from-bam -o path/to/output \ --split-R1-and-R2 \ -O BAM_1_and_BAM_2 \ BAM_FILE_1.bam BAM_FILE_2.bam
You can also compress the output by adding the flag
