Genozip is designed to be a general-purpose software and a development framework for genomic compression by providing five core capabilities - universality (support for all common genomic file formats), high compression ratios, speed, feature-richness, and extensibility.Genozip delivers high-performance compression for widely-used genomic data formats in genomics research, namely FASTQ, SAM/BAM/CRAM, VCF, GVF, FASTA, PHYLIP, and 23andMe formats. Our test results show that Genozip is fast and...
