Variant classification

85 bytes added, 12:44, 11 September 2014
The Variant Call Format (VCF) is a flexible file format specification that allows us to represent many different variant types ranging from SNPs, indels to copy number variations. However, variant representation in VCF is non-unique for variants that have explicitly expressed reference and alternate sequences.
On this wiki page, we describe a a variant classification system for VCF entries that is invariant to [ normalization] except for the case of MNPs.
