The bedtools utilities are a suite of tools for performing a wide range of genomics analysis tasks. The most widely-used of these tools enable genome arithmetic, i.e., set theory on the genome. For example, with bedtools one can intersect, merge, count, complement, and shuffle genomic intervals from multiple files in common genomic formats such as BAM, BED, GFF/GTF, and VCF. Although each individual utility is designed to do a relatively simple task, e.g., intersect two interval files, more sophisticated analyses can be conducted by stringing together multiple bedtools operations on the command line or in shell scripts.
Binary packages can be installed with the high-level tool pkgin (which can be installed with pkg_add) or pkg_add(1) (installed by default). The NetBSD packages collection is also designed to permit easy installation from source.
The pkg_admin audit command locates any installed package which has been mentioned in security advisories as having vulnerabilities.
Please note the vulnerabilities database might not be fully accurate, and not every bug is exploitable with every configuration.
