Matching sets of genomic regions / Increase regions in BED


Add requested base pairs to increase each feature.



This tool increases the size of each feature in a feature file be a user-defined number of bases. It restricts the resizing to the size of the chromosome (i.e. no start < 0 and no end > chromosome size).


The output is a BED file.


This tool uses the slopBed function of the BEDTools package. Please cite the article:
