Does gatk support genome comparison studies?

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:

    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.
