HTSlib

http://www.htslib.org/

Samtools is a suite of programs for interacting with high-throughput sequencing data. It consists of three separate repositories:

Samtools
Reading/writing/editing/indexing/viewing SAM/BAM/CRAM format
BCFtools
Reading/writing BCF2/VCF/gVCF files and calling/filtering/summarising SNP and short indel sequence variants
HTSlib
A C library for reading/writing high-throughput sequencing data

Samtools and BCFtools both use HTSlib internally, but these source packages contain their own copies of htslib so they can be built independently.
