Filters out reads that don't overlap the specified region. NOTE: This approach to extracting overlapping reads is very slow compared to using PrintReads and -L on an indexed bam file.
Category Read Filters
OverviewA simple read filter that allows for the user to specify intervals at the filtering stage. NOTE: This class is intended to be a convenience method for the very specific case where a user might want to subset a bam file by intervals but they cannot for whatever reason index/resort the file to be sorted by position. As a consequence a file subsetted using this filter will involve reading over the entire bam input and will consequently be very slow. The preferred method for subsetting a bam file in this case is to use the -L command to subset using an index to avoid reading parts of the bam outside of the specified subset.
