BEDOPS: High performance genomic feature operations:

Summary: The large and growing number of genome-wide data sets highlights the need for high performance feature analysis and data comparison methods, in addition to efficient data storage and retrieval techniques. We introduce BEDOPS, a software suite for common genomic analysis tasks that offers improved flexibility, scalability, and execution time characteristics over previously published packages. The suite includes a utility to compress large inputs into a lossless format that can provide greater space savings and faster data extractions than alternatives.

Availability:http://code.google.com/p/bedops/ includes binaries, source, and documentation.
