Is it possible to source and read bam files directly from ftp site into Unified Genotyper without downloading them first. This option works in samtools view -- but if I try the simple straightforward way in GATK (just replacing the -I inputfilename.bam with -I ftplinktobamfile.bam ) it does not work. Is there another way of doing this? This would save me a lot of diskspace if I could do this.
