Tabix indexes files where some columns indicate sequence coordinates: name
(usually a chromosme), start and stop. The input data file must be position
sorted and compressed by bgzip (provided in this package), which has a gzip
like interface. After indexing, tabix is able to quickly retrieve data lines by
chromosomal coordinates. Fast data retrieval also works over network if an URI
is given as a file name.
