I have been struggling with the interpretation of the SOR annotation. I do get that a higher value is the sign of a strand bias and that this value is never negative.
I did read the SOR annotation documention but still cannot figure out how you calculate the SOR.
Here is one of my example where a SB is present for sure
REF + strand = 2185 reads
REF - strand = 5 reads
ALT + strand = 7 reads
ALT - strand = 2370 reads.
When I calculate "R" as indicated in the documentation, I obtain a very high value of 147 955.
But for this variant in the VCF file, SOR = 11.382
How is the 11.382 obtained ? Could you please help me in understanding the computation ?
