Hi there,

I'm starting to use use the HaplotypeCaller to identify variants in my exome projects, but I was wondering how it initially determines if a region has the potential to be variable. I couldn't find any useful documentation, could anyone of you help me to basically understand this first step?

Thank you in advance.

    Thank you Geraldine: yes, I was asking about the general principle behind the HC selection of the active regions.
