3. Include tool and Java versions.
4. Tell us whether you are following GATK Best Practices.
5. Include relevant details, e.g. platform, DNA- or RNA-Seq, WES (+capture kit) or WGS (PCR-free or PCR+), paired- or single-end, read length, expected average coverage, somatic data, etc.
6. For tool errors, include the error stacktrace as well as the exact command.
7. For format issues, include the result of running ValidateSamFile for BAMs or ValidateVariants for VCFs.
8. For weird results, include an illustrative example, e.g. attach IGV screenshots according to Article#5484.
9. For a seeming variant that is uncalled, include results of following Article#1235.

#### ☞ Formatting tip!

Wrap blocks of code, error messages and BAM/VCF snippets--especially content with hashes (#)--with lines with three backticks ( ` ) each to make a code block as demonstrated here.

GATK 3.7 is here! Be sure to read the Version Highlights and optionally the full Release Notes.

# Probable bug in SelectVariant --maxIndelSize

Dear All,

Just thought I should report a possible small bug with SelectVariant --maxIndelSize as I think it's only filtering insertions greater than the given value and not deletions.
Of course using JEXL expressions I can still get the variants I'm after...

Cheers,
Laurent

Hi Laurent,

Thanks for pointing this out, we'll take a look at what's going on there. Are you using the latest version (2.4-7)?

Hi Geraldine,

Yes, I am using 2.4-7. To be entirely fair, it could be debated whether this is the desired behavior (as deletions would be of negative length when compared to the reference genome) but maybe it could be specified in the documentation then. Also the fact that there is no --minIndelSize option got me thinking the the --maxIndelSize would perform size selection on both insertions and deletions.

Cheers,
Laurent
