Support for Imprecise Indels
« on: May 23, 2014, 07:21:29 AM »
The latest vcf versions include support for IMPRECISE deletions and insertions. The length of a SV is determined by SVLEN in the INFO field rather than ALT and REF. The ALT field will instead have <DEL> or <INS> as a placeholder.

Could vcf2bed add support for this? It would be useful to find intersections with precise breakpoints in another vcf file.

Can you post a link to a specification document that summarizes changes, that I could look at? Thanks!
