Hi everybody, I downloaded the variants from 1000 Genomes project phase 3 (e.g

When I check structural variants with type = 'DEL' (VT=SV, SVTYPE=DEL), I see mostly reference with one base and alternative as <cn0>. I expect SV would have a much larger size, otherwise, they would be considered as INDELs. (most INDELs in the data are a few bases)

I am new to SVs. Could anyone give some insights ?
