Test-drive the GATK tools and Best Practices pipelines on Terra

Check out this blog post to learn how you can get started with GATK and try out the pipelines in preconfigured workspaces (with a user-friendly interface!) without having to install anything.
We will be out of the office on November 11th and 13th 2019, due to the U.S. holiday(Veteran's day) and due to a team event(Nov 13th). We will return to monitoring the GATK forum on November 12th and 14th respectively. Thank you for your patience.

Spark in other clusters?

After experiencing some issues with GATK 3.2 on CentOS 7.4 (AVX changes broke everything), we've installed the newer versions - 3.8.

I thought I'd install 4 beta to test, but am confused by all this talk of SPARK.

We run a SLURM cluster. Do I need to install SPARK to run on top of that in order to get the advantages, or is SPARK not strictly necessary for running on a cluster?

That being the case - can we delete the gatk-package-4.beta.5-spark.jar?

(to my shame I found the answer in this tutorial after asking the question)
