How to open CRAM files
Did your computer fail to open a CRAM file? We explain what CRAM files are and recommend software that we know can open or convert your files.
What is a CRAM file?
CRAM files are Compressed Alignment format files, which you can read more about below.
The CRAM file extension indicates to your device which app can open the file. However, different apps may use the same file extension for different types of data. So a CRAM opener may not be able to open all kinds of CRAM files. In this case, though, we only know of one specific use.

We have not yet described in detail what these files contain and what they are used for, but our team is working tiredlessly through thousands of file formats.
