MuTect v1 -- Reliable and accurate identification of somatic point mutations in high-throughput sequencing data of cancer genomes. Note that a new version called MuTect2 has been integrated into the GATK as of version 3.5 as a beta preview. Once MuTect2 moves out of beta status, support for the original MuTect will be discontinued.
