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 have been trying to find documentation for understanding the annotations and numbers in the VCF file. Something like below, can someone guide me how to understand/interpret the numbers? How is the quality of the variant calling for this particular indel?

AC=2; AF=0.100; AN=20; BaseQRankSum=6.161; ClippingRankSum=-2.034; DP=313; FS=5.381; InbreedingCoeff=-0.1180; MLEAC=2; MLEAF=0.100; MQ=58.49; MQ0=0; MQRankSum=-0.456; QD=1.46; ReadPosRankSum=-4.442; VQSLOD=0.348; topculprit=ReadPosRankSum
