Using the GATK API to annotate my VCF

lindenblindenb FranceMember Posts: 37

I just quickly wrote a set of Tools to annotate my VCFs ( )

For example, one of those tools uses a BED/XML file indexed with tabix to annotate my VCF . (My code just uses the java api for tabix to get the XML at a given position)

Question: is there something in the GATK-API that would allow me to implement my code using the GATK-API: What kind of walker should I use ? What would be the benefits of using the GATK-API ? for example does using a gatk-walker will automatically make my code parallelizable ?

    Thank you Mark & Geraldine. I think I'm going to play with a API next week. I've already got a bunch of question to ask but I'll try out a few things before asking some stupid questions.
