    MuTect is used to detect the point somatic mutation. Since SomaticIndelDetector has been removed, how can I find the somatic indels? Do you know where can I find this program? Thanks.

    Could you recommend any software from Broad Cancer Group?

    The simplest way to get answers about this is to ask this question in the MuTect section. MuTect is produced by the Cancer Group so they will know.
