chr1 8388315 8388618 AluY 2582 -
The columns represent chromosome, start, end, name etc. I am a little confused about the meaning of the 5th column, 2582, may I ask what does it mean?Thanks,
Thank you for your interest in the Genome Browser and for your question about the 5th column in the BED output format.
The 5th column in a BED format is the score field. For more information on BED fields, see the following help page: https://genome.ucsc.edu/FAQ/FAQformat.html#format1.
In the case of the RepeatMasker table, swScores are put into the 5th column. The swScore is the Smith-Waterman alignment score between the repeat element template sequence, from the RepBase library, and the genomic sequence. For more information on RepeatMasker and its output, see the following help page: http://www.repeatmasker.org/webrepeatmaskerhelp.html#reading. For more information on the RepBase Library, see the following page: http://www.girinst.org/repbase/update/index.html.
You can also change the output format to "all fields from selected table". The output of that search will contain all of the fields of the table and the corresponding column name.
