Hello dear GATK Team,

it seams that the ignoreFilter Argument in VariantRecalibrator does not work.
I want to include variants with LowQual filter in the calculation, but cant find the right way to do it.
I tried all of these:

-ignoreFilter LowQual
-ignoreFilter [LowQual]
-ignoreFilter "LowQual"
-ignoreFilter "Low Quality"
-ignoreFilter Low Quality
-ignoreFilter [Low Quality]

and also with --ignore_filter instead of -ignoreFilter.

#

Found 2 solutions:

1) Remove the LowQual filter with VariantFiltration and "--invalidatePreviousFilters"

2) "-ignoreFilter LowQual" has to be applied to ApplyRecalibration also...
