A data loader to work with archives of BigWig files to generate a BigWigSet database. Two or more BigWig files may be combined into an archive file and uploaded. The files are extracted, a metadata index generated if required, and a configuration written using subtracks for each BigWig file. This allows a fast, convenient option to bundle multiple data files together and provide a concise, organized interface to multiple data tracks.
Supported archives include TAR (.tar, .tar.gz, .tgz, .tbz2, .tar.bz2) and ZIP (.zip) files. Archives should include only BigWig files (which must have a .bw extension) and optionally a metadata text file. Extraneous files and directory paths are ignored.
Subtrack tables are set up using the display_name tag value.
See the documentation for Bio::DB::BigWigSet for more information.
The Bio-BigFile (Bio::DB::BigWigSet) Perl module must be installed.
Archives are processed through external tar and unzip utilities. These are located by searching the default environment PATH.
