SAM (Sequence Alignment/Map) format is a generic format for storing
large nucleotide sequence alignments. SAM aims to be a format that:

- Is flexible enough to store all the alignment information generated
by various alignment programs
- Is simple enough to be easily generated by alignment programs or
converted from existing alignment formats
- Is compact in file size
- Allows most of operations on the alignment to work on a stream
without loading the whole alignment into memory
- Allows the file to be indexed by genomic position to efficiently
retrieve all reads aligning to a locus.

SAM Tools provide various utilities for manipulating alignments in the
SAM format, including sorting, merging, indexing and generating
alignments in a per-position format.
