2. Try the latest version of tools.
3. Include tool and Java versions.
4. Tell us whether you are following GATK Best Practices.
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.
9. For a seeming variant that is uncalled, include results of following Article#1235.

Did we ask for a bug report?


Then follow instructions in Article#1894.

Formatting tip!


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

EMIT_ALL_CONFIDENT_SITES for Indels?

dmittelmandmittelman Member Posts: 3

When I use EMIT_ALL_CONFIDENT_SITES for SNPs, I get an expected very large list of genotypes regardless if the genotypes vary from the reference. When I use the same command line but I switch the model to Indels, I only get a VCF of variant sites. Is the EMIT_ALL_CONFIDENT_SITES option not compatible with Indel discovery?

I'm grateful for any clarification.

    Eric thanks for the super fast response. Let me just ask, when calling indels, how do I know which regions are callable but simply not variant from the reference?

    That's actually (unwittingly) a loaded question around us. I personally believe that this can be inferred from the depth (DP) of a region; although there are enough folks here who disagree with me that it is a problem we do plan on tackling in the future (as discussed in other similar threads, and with no promise as to an ETA).

    Eric, thanks. This actually makes perfect sense, it is definitely not straightforward.
