Hi Steve,

Many thanks. I will try BAM now. The files i have been trying till now
were in .MAP form generated by bowtie.

Logically if its the ram problem then it should get solved with BAM
file. I will try to follow all the above suggestions made by you.

Thanks again,

Best regards,

Kirti Prakash
