getPileupSummaries input for hg38
Hi- I would like to run
getPileupSummaries on bam files aligned against hg38. Do you have any recommendation about what vcf input to use for hg38?
The docs relative to getPileupSummaries suggest using gnomAD which is based on hg19. Would you suggest using that after lifting them over to hg38?
Alternatively, one could use dbSNP common but dbSNP vcf don't have the
AF field. They do have a
CAF field which seems promising after some parsing, here's the description
An ordered, comma delimited list of allele frequencies based on 1000Genomes, starting with the reference allele followed by alternate alleles as ordered in the ALT column. Where a 1000Genomes alternate allele is not in the dbSNPs alternate allele set, the allele is added to the ALT column. The minor allele is the second largest value in the list, and was previuosly reported in VCF as the GMAF. This is the GMAF reported on the RefSNP and EntrezSNP pages and VariationReporter
Either way, there seem to be no off-the-shelf input for hg38. Any thought much appreciated!
