Collectively, the bedtools utilities are a swiss-army knife of tools for a wide-range of genomics analysis tasks. The most widely-used tools enable genome arithmetic: that is, set theory on the genome. While each individual tool is designed to do a relatively simple task, quite sophisticated analyses can be conducted by combining multiple bedtools operations on the UNIX command line.
