Visualize .bam file of short read alignments

# 1) map short reads against a reference sequence
→ bowtie2

# 2) create sorted and indexed bam file
samtools view -b -S SAMPLE.sam > SAMPLE.bam   # convert .sam to .bam
samtools sort SAMPLE.bam -o SAMPLE_sorted.bam # sort .bam file
samtools index SAMPLE_sorted.bam              # create index (.bam.bai file)


# 3) open in tablet sorted bam file (and related reference sequence)
[Open Assembly]
SAMPLE_sorted.bam
