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.
Attention:
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.

UV mutagenesis hotspots

How can I use GATK to identify mutation hotspots on a genome? What tools do I use? I have an organism that I UV mutagenized and resequenced and now I want to identify regions on the genome that were more prone to mutation.

    GATK can only give you the mutations themselves. To do an analysis on mutation hotspots you will need to use some other software, I recommend looking in the literature to see what people use for this. Good luck!
