gia: Genome Interval Arithmetic

MIT licensed actions status Crates.io


gia is a free and open-source command-line tool for highly efficient and scalable set operations on genomic interval data.

It is inspired by the open source command-line tools bedtools and bedops and aims to be a drop-in replacement to both.

gia is written in rust and distributed via cargo. It is a command-line tool built on top of bedrs, a separate and abstracted genomic interval library.


gia is distributed using the rust package manager cargo.
