Big Multiple Alignment Format

Other names: bigMaf

The bigMaf format stores multiple alignments in a format compatible with MAF files, which is then compressed and indexed as a bigBed. The bigMaf files are created using the program bedToBigBed, run with the -as option to pull in a special autoSql (.as) file that defines the fields of the bigMaf.
