Hi all,

I ran into this problem, and thought others might run in to it as well:
When using bowtie and samtools, positions are formatted with a 1-base
offset, whereas interval format requires 0-base offset.
Recently, I used the 'Filter pileup on coverage and SNPs' tool with the
'convert coordinates to intervals' option, and used the output with the
'aaChanges' tool to detect amino acid changes.
In the aaChanges output there was an off-by-one discrepancy with a previous
analysis, which brought this problem to my attention.
Should the 'Filter pileup' tool be changed to produce output with 0-base
offset when interval format is selected, since interval format is defined as
having 0-base output? It seems that others might run into the same problem,
and it would be an easy one to miss.
Although the pileup format is now deprecated, the same problem might occur
if/when the change to VCF format occurs, as it also uses 1-base offset. It
also may be a problem for other tools that use interval format as an input,
expecting a 0-based position.
