The Split reads track shows a graph in the Strategy view header of all the reads that are split in two. These reads correspond with the Split read arrows (controlled via the Strategy section of the Style panel), and can be used to identify structural variations in genomic and exome assemblies and exon usage. This track can only be displayed for .assemby projects.
To display the Split reads track, you must check the Strategy header > Split reads box in the Tracks panel and also click the associated plus sign (if any) in the Strategy view header.
Currently, the Split reads track does not have editable options. However, you can add white space above and/or below the track using sliders in the Layout section.
