Are soft clipped bases used in indel realignmment?
Some aligners produce Smith-Waterman alignments and may soft clip bases from a read when there are indels or mismatches near the ends of the reads. I was wondering if you include these bases in the realignment process? And if not whether you might consider making it an option?
