I made a program that is potentially useful for those working with bigWig data:

Hi brentp, thank you. I've never shared any software before, so I'm a little worried about it. I keep trying to add to the web page to limit confusion. I will later add examples of using output from the program in R for plots, or other things like painting chromosomes with UCSC genome graphs.

Hi Andy,

Thanks for your tool! Is it possible to use it to convert a bigWig to a Wig? I have been having an issue with the bigWigToWig tool from UCSC.

Adding this repository (cgpBigWig) from a group at the Wellcome Sanger Trust, including bg2bw, which reads a bedGraph from STDIN, outputting bigwig (which bedGraphToBigWig still cannot do).
