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.
HaplotypeCaller can't call a 10bp deletion variant
Hi, GATK team.
I use haplotypeCaller to call variants, but it can't find a 10bp deletion variant, as you can see in the graph.
I use -L targetInterval
to see whether haplotype is correctly assembled, but the haplotype.bam is empty, it seems the targetInterval is not active region.
Then I use -forceActive, the haplotype.bam is not empty anymore, but the output vcf file still doesn't contain the 10bp deletion variant, so I'm really confused now, what should I do to call this variant out.
I use gatk3.6.
the 10 bp deletion's position is chr17:29541466.
Here is my pipeline:
java -d64 -server -XX:+UseParallelGC -XX:ParallelGCThreads=2 -Djava.io.tmpdir=$tmp_dir -jar $gatk \
-R $reference_file \
-L 17:29,541,000-29,542,000 \
-bamWriterType ALL_POSSIBLE_HAPLOTYPES \
-T HaplotypeCaller \
-I $in_dir/NA12878MOD_sort_markdup_vardict_sort_realign_recal.bam \
--dbsnp $dbsnp_del100 \
