How to select variants that have multiple alleles with JEXL

thondeboerthondeboer Redwood City, CA, USAMember ✭✭

I am trying to select variant sites that have more than one alternative allele.
How do I construct a JEXl expression to select those sites?

I suspect there is a VC field I can use but I cannot find any description of the possible variant context functions that are supported.

    Related to this, where did VariantContext go in the codebase? It looks like it's now in org.broadinstitute.variant, but I can't find that package in the source anymore. If the source is no longer available, can I request (another) documentation feature - publish the API out of it?

    The Variant package has been transferred to the care of the Picard team, who provide their sources via sourceforge.

    The picard-public repository on sourceforge, in addition to housing the sam-jdk and picard-public, is now home to tribble and the org.broadinstitute.variant package (which includes VariantContext and associated classes as well as the VCF/BCF codecs).

    The command to check out the sources is :

    svn checkout svn://svn.code.sf.net/p/picard/code/trunk picard-public
