We're trying to only get hits of certain lengths. Is there a setting to use that sets the minimum length for each hit?

Howdy, Jason,

Lastz (the underlying program) has some options that are geared toward filtering by length, though none uses length exactly. In the lastz wrapper for galaxy, the only length-relevant filtering option is "Do not report matches that cover less than this percentage of each read". If your reads are all the same length, or close to the same length, this could meet your needs. If the length distribution of your reads is pretty wide (as can occur with 454), then probably not.

I'm not familiar with all the rest of the galaxy toolset, but it seems like there's bound to be a tool that can compute interval length from the interval's start and end, and then filter on that.
