Filter out reads that have too many clipped bases on either end.
Category Read Filters
OverviewFilter out reads where the number of soft-/hard-clipped bases on either end is above a certain threshold. This filter will filter reads where the number of soft clips on one end of the read is too large. It does NOT check the total number of bases clipped on BOTH ends. For the purposes of this filter, the count of soft and hard clipped bases on either end of a read are combined. For example, a read with the following cigar strings will be filtered out (given maxClippedBases=1000): 1500S0000M 900H300S50000M 1001H50000M However, this read will NOT be filtered out (given maxClippedBases=1000): 900S50000M900S 150H800S50000M900S150H 1000S500M 500M1000S Note: This is designed for use with (unpaired) long reads, but can be used with any reads.
