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.

#### ☞ 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.

# Understanding TiTvRatioStandard in TiTvVariantEvaluator

MIMember

Hi,

I have genotype calls on an exome sequencing dataset, and have used the GATK TiTvVariantEvaluator tool to estimate TiTv ratios for my samples. I'm however having trouble understanding the "TiTvRatioStandard" column, and how I interpret it. My TiTv ratios for known variants are 2.56, below the generally accepted cutoff of 2.8. The TiTv ratios I get for novel variants is also very low (~1.25), which should bring up a red flag, but the values in the "TiTvRatioStandard" column for novel variants is 1.04, and for known variants is 2.56.

I haven't been able to understand what these values mean, and whether I should use them as threshold/quality measures. If someone could point me to more information on this, it would be very helpful.

Thanks,
