|Tabix indexes a TAB-delimited genome position file in.tab.bgz and creates an index file in.tab.bgz.tbi when region is absent from the command-line. The input data file must be position sorted and compressed by bgzip which has a gzip(1) like interface. After indexing,
tabix is able to quickly retrieve data lines overlapping regions specified in the format "chr:beginPos-endPos". Fast data retrieval also works over network if URI is given as a file name and in this case the index file will be downloaded if it is not present locally.
