We’re moving the GATK website, docs and forum to a new platform. Read the full story and breakdown of key changes on this blog.
If you happen to see a question you know the answer to, please do chime in and help your fellow community members. We encourage our fourm members to be more involved, jump in and help out your fellow researchers with their questions. GATK forum is a community forum and helping each other with using GATK tools and research is the cornerstone of our success as a genomics research community.We appreciate your help!
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.
HaplotyperCaller optional arguments:
I'm using GATK 4.0.6 HaplotypeCaller to call wild bird SNP and InDel sites.
nohup java -jar /opt/GATK-4.0.6/GATK-4.0.6-local.jar HaplotypeCaller -R bird_genome_reference.fa -I input.bam --minimum-mapping-quality 25 -mbq 13 -O VCF_two_type/HC.vcf --output-mode EMIT_VARIANTS_ONLY &
When I check the output in nohup, I notice that there are many optional arguments in the nohup file.
But I didn't see some of them in the ToolDoc of HaplotypeCaller.
Why do not put all the available arguments in the ToolDoc?
I want to set the threshold condition of two short variants caller(bcftools mpileup & HaplotypeCaller) the same as possible and then get the consistent short variants site with SelectVariants to improve my SNP & Indels quality.
