Variant Detection - filters

The variant detectors offer a number of filters for which the user will set values in two wizard steps, the 'General filters' and the 'Noise filters'. Note that the tools add for most filters the values calculated and the bases filtered on as annotations to the variants (see Variant Detectors - the outputs). This means that the filtering information is available in the variant track and that the user can choose to perform the filtering in a post-processing step from the variant track table rather than applying the filtering during the variant calling detection step.

The filters are described below.
