Hi Alexandra,

Unfortunately GenomeBrowse is not able to handle unsorted BAM files. We recommend using SAMtools or a similar BAM tool to have the file sorted.

Once the file is sorted GenomeBrowse will be able to successfully compute index and coverage files for viewing the BAM file since you have download the corresponding reference sequence.

Let us know if you have any further questions or issues.

Thanks, Jami...
