In the BWA man page, it is said that BWA should output a certain number of optional fields like X0, X1, XO, etc... However, when I run BWA mem, none of them are produced (some of them would be extremely useful for the project I'm dealing with right now).
Could someone shed lights on this?
Thanks for the info. Should be included in the BWA man page...
I once said on Biostars that my 'go-to phrase for avoiding a question' is "it corrupts the file"; but now it is definitely "due to algorithmic restrictions".
This works in so many more scenarios too. Forgotten birthday presents. Overboiling the water when cooking pasta. Walking into people in public. All sorts.
