I have a bunch of .hic files of different species. But, I don't know which reference genome assembly (e.g. GRCh37 or GRCh38 in the case of human genome) the genomic co-ordinates of the .hic file correspond to. So I wonder if there is any way to figure out the version of the reference genome assembly from a .hic file.
Therefore, my question is: Does .hic file contain metadata such as the version of reference genome assembly? If yes, then how could I access it?
(I could obtain the information I need by digging into the methods sections of each paper corresponding to each .hic file. But it would be much better if I could get that right-away from the .hic file.).
