ready Big Chain

Abbreviation: bigChain


General Information
The bigChain format describes a pairwise alignment that allow gaps in both sequences simultaneously, just as chain files do; however, bigChain files are compressed and indexed as bigBeds. Chain files are converted to bigChain files using the program bedToBigBed, run with the -as option to pull in a special autoSql (.as) file that defines the fields of the bigChain.
