Usage of "--dontUseSoftClippedBases" HaplotypeCaller option for exom enrichment data

Martin_ZieglerMartin_Ziegler Munich, GermanyMember

Hi GATK Team,
HaplotypeCaller does not call structural variants from soft clipped bases, therefore the "--dontUseSoftClippedBases" should mainly reduce false positives (e.g. incomplete adapter trimming)? Is this thought correct or am i wrong?

Greetings from Munich
