Description : C++ library for parsing and manipulating VCF files
The Variant Call Format (VCF) is a flat-file, tab-delimited textual format
intended to concisely describe reference-indexed variations between
individuals. VCF provides a common interchange format for the description of
variation in individuals and populations of samples, and has become the defacto
standard reporting format for a wide array of genomic variant detectors.
vcflib provides methods to manipulate and interpret sequence variation as it
can be described by VCF. It is both:
* an API for parsing and operating on records of genomic variation as it can
be described by the VCF format,
* and a collection of command-line utilities for executing complex
manipulations on VCF files.
Remark: This library is a precondition for the Debian Med target freebayes.
