Joining genomic annotations files with the tabix API.

Joining genomic annotations files with the tabix API.: Tabix is a software that is part of the samtools package.

After indexing a file, tabix is able to quickly retrieve data lines overlapping genomic regions (see also my previous post about tabix). Here, I wrote a tool named jointabix that joins the data of a (chrom/start/end) file with a file indexed with tabix. I've posted the code on github at: https://github.com/lindenb/samtools-utilities/blob/
