Work with PacBio BAM files

The pbbam software package provides components to create, query, and edit PacBio BAM files and associated indices. These components include a core C++ library, bindings for additional languages, and command-line utilities. This library is not intended to be used as a general-purpose BAM utility - all input and output BAMs must adhere to the PacBio BAM format specification. Non-PacBio BAMs will cause exceptions to be thrown.


Install the latest version of pbbam as follows:

guix install pbbam

Or install a particular version:

guix install pbbam@2.1.0

You can also install packages in augmented, pure or containerized environments for development or simply to try them out without polluting your user profile. See the guix shell documentation for more information.
