    Genozip[1][2] is a proprietary universal compressor for genomic files. Its main feature is to compress FASTQ, SAM/BAM/CRAM, VCF/BCF, FASTA, GVF, PHYLIP and 23andMe files, but it can also work as a normal file compressor.

    Genozip works by segmenting a source file into its individual data contexts, applying context-specific algorithms to exploit correlations between values within the same context or between contexts, and finally applying the appropriate compression codec to each context.[2][3]

    Genozip is made to be extensible; it can be extended either by adding new segmenters[lower-alpha 1]context-specific algorithms and/or codecs.[1] It is one of the first universal compressor of genomic file formats[lower-alpha 2].



    1. To add support for compressing additional file formats
    2. i.e. able to compress all common genomic file formats, while taking advantages of their unique characteristics to achieve compression better than general-purpose compressors
