Remove reference variants

The variant tracks produced by the variant detection tools of CLC Cancer Research Workbench include reference alleles complementing a non-reference allele (i.e. a heterozygous variant where only one allele is different from the reference). In some situations this information is not necessary and these reference allele variants can be filtered away. To run the Remove reference variants, go to the toolbox:

        Toolbox | Remove Variants (Image remove_information_closed_16_n_p) | Remove Reference Variants (Image filter_reference_variants_16_n_p)

This opens a wizard where you can select a variant track (Image variant_track_16_n_p) that should be filtered.

Click on the button labeled Next and Finish to create a new track without the reference variants.
