       sniffles - structural variation caller for third-generation sequencing data


       sniffles  -m  string  [-s  int] [–max_num_splits int] [-q int] [-l int] [-v string] [–bede

       sniffles -m reads.bam -v calls.vcf


       Sniffles is a structural variation caller using third  generation  sequencing  (PacBio  or
       Oxford  Nanopore).  It detects all types of SVs using evidence from split-read alignments,
       high-mismatch regions, and coverage analysis.  Please note the current version of Sniffles
       requires output from BWA-MEM with the optional SAM attributes enabled!
