maybe a strange question: is there a limitation on the size of a region that could be found skipped/retained? In other words, what is the maximal possible length of a junction?

Thank you!

I've seen some junctions anecdotally which span nearly the entire gene. Majiq to my knowledge does not place a hard limit on maximum junction length.

Just to add to Paul’s answer, MAJIQ will not assign a junction to a gene unless its start and end are within the gene’s starting/ending coordinates. So, in this sense, the longest possible junction that can be seen in quantifications/VOILA is determined by the longest (in genomic coordinates) gene.
