    Thank you very much!

    I just wanted to be sure, since e.g. bedtools requires name sorted bam. However, I tried SamToFastq (GATK) for both coordinate and name sorted bam (paired) and the read count in fastq is exactly the same. Also after alignment the result is identical (using samtools flagstats).
