# MpileupToVcf
## Introduction
This tool enables a user to extract a VCF file out a mpileup file generated from the BAM file.
The tool can also stream through STDin and STDout so that the mpileup file is not stored on disk.
Mpileup files tend to be very large since they describe each covered base position in the genome on a per read basis,
so usually one does not want to safe these files.
This tool enables a user to extract a VCF file out a mpileup file generated from the BAM file using *samtools mpileup*, for instance.
The tool can also stream through STDin and STDout so that it is not necessary to store the mpileup file on disk.
