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.

Does gatk support genome comparison studies?

Hi,

I have two draft genomes that I would like to compare and I was wondering whether gatk supported such studies?

Thanks for your help!

    Hi there,

    It depends a lot on what kinds of comparisons you want to make. The core functionalities of our software are described here: http://www.broadinstitute.org/gatk/guide/best-practices

    Hi Geraldine,

    Thanks for your reply.
    I am not working with RNA-seq reads. But what I have is a large number of predicted genes from two closely related species and I was wondering if gatk could identify indels between homologous sequences.

    Regards
    Stephen
