5. Include relevant details, e.g. platform, DNA- or RNA-Seq, WES (+capture kit) or WGS (PCR-free or PCR+), paired- or single-end, read length, expected average coverage, somatic data, etc.
6. For tool errors, include the error stacktrace as well as the exact command.
7. For format issues, include the result of running ValidateSamFile for BAMs or ValidateVariants for VCFs.
8. For weird results, include an illustrative example, e.g. attach IGV screenshots according to Article#5484.

Did we ask for a bug report?


Then follow instructions in Article#1894.

Formatting tip!


Surround blocks of code, error messages and BAM/VCF snippets--especially content with hashes (#)--with lines with three backticks ( ``` ) each to make a code block.

Combining PhaseByTransmission and ReadBackedPhasing

BerntPoppBerntPopp Member Posts: 49

Hello GATK Team,

there are currently two walkers for phasing in the GATK PhaseByTransmission and ReadBackedPhasing.
Because of their different information source (PhaseByTransmission has the called VCF file, ReadBackedPhasing the BAM files) these can produce different or complementary genotypes.
There used to be a walker for this job "MergeAndMatchHaplotypes" but it seems to be discontinued.

What is the current recommendation for Trios?
Only use PhaseByTransmission?

    Hi Bernt,

    You can use PhaseByTransmission first and then use ReadBackedPhasing with the --respectPhaseInInput option. This will respect the previous phase from PhaseByTransmission but phase sites with ReadBackedPhasing where possible.

    Cheers,
    Laurent
