I am trying to clarify the different coordinate systems used to represent variants in the different platforms or standards. I have identified different systems such as left alignment, right alignment, fully alignment, zero-based, one-based... Nevertheless, I cannot fully understand the difference between right/left alignment and 0/1 based coordinates. Is there any difference? Are they synonyms?

other answers are good for 0 vs 1 based coordinates, but you mentioned left and right alignment which may refer to "variant normalization" https://genome.sph.umich.edu/wiki/Variant_Normalization
