IGB supports search using Lucene indexes.

How it works

Use the Lucene indexing code (see tools/Lucene) to create indexes for individual data files. The indexes should be stored in IGBQuickLoad directories along with the data files they are indexing.

Lucene indexes are most useful for enabling search of data files such as EST or probe set alignment files that users don't normally load into memory.

How to index a data file

  1. Build QUESTION: HOW?
  2. Unzip This will create a directory named Lucene that contains everything you need to index some files.
  3. Create a file named For an example, see Lucene/resources/ This file determines the fields that will be indexed and the data files that will be indexed. QUESTION: How do we know what to call the fields we want to include or exclude in the indexing?
