Variant classification

: a. The reference and alternate sequence are not the same length.
: b. The removal of a subsequence of the longer sequence would reduce the longer sequence to the smaller sequence.
: a. A clumping of nearby SNPs, MNPs or Indels.
;5. SV
: The alternate sequence is represented by a angled bracket tag.
= Classification Procedure =
;1. Trim each allele
;2. Inspect length to define INDEL and count insertions or deletions
;3. Inspect overlapping fragments to count transitions and transversions
: a. if shorter allele is of length 1, check overlap on both ends,
: if one of the ends match, ignore ts/tv counts.
: else, align strictly on 5' end and count transitions and transversions.
: b. If all overlapping nucleotides do not match, assign SNP if shorter allele is of length 1 and MNP if not.
;4. If all alleles are the same length, assign MNP to the entire variant.
