Validates consistency of the aligner interface
Validates consistency of the aligner interface by taking reads already aligned by BWA in a BAM file, stripping them of their alignment data, realigning them, and making sure one of the best resulting realignments matches the original alignment from the input file.
This tool requires that BWA be available on the java path.
This Read Filter is automatically applied to the data by the Engine before processing by CheckAlignment.
This tool does not apply any downsampling by default.
The arguments described in the entries below can be supplied to this tool to modify its behavior. For example, the -L argument directs the GATK engine restricts processing to specific genomic intervals (this is an Engine capability and is therefore available to all GATK walkers).
This table summarizes the command-line arguments that are specific to this tool. For details, see the list further down below the table.

Arguments in this list are specific to this tool. Keep in mind that other arguments are available that are shared with other tools (e.g. command-line GATK arguments); see Inherited arguments above.
Index files generated by bwa index -d bwtsw. The supporting BWT index generated using BWT.
