Truncated alignment (BAM) files for offline viewing
We've introduced a more efficient way of downloading the alignment files without having to download the entire BAM by focusing on the variant of interest. We've added a packaged download of all the needed files (VCF, BAM, indexes) for offline viewing. The original BAM is truncated to include 1000 bps before the start coordinate and 1000 bps after the end coordinate of the variant. These files can be found in the 'Datasets' section under the heading of "Variant alignment files". Rather than waiting for hours/days, you can download in seconds/minutes.
