Service Notice: Due to the blizzard currently hammering the US Northeast, the Broad is shut down and the GATK forum will be mostly unattended while we hunker down and sip hot cocoa with marshmallows. Assuming the power stays on and we're able to dig ourselves out of the snow when it's all over, normal service should resume Wednesday or Thursday.

  • -I <mask-file> : The genome mask file. An indexed fasta file containing the genome mask. The fasta file must be indexed with samtools faidx or the equivalent.

  • -R <fasta-file> : Reference sequence. An indexed fasta file containing the reference sequence to mask. The fasta file must be indexed with samtools faidx or the equivalent.

3. Outputs
