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.
ReduceReads and scatter/gather
I have a question about ReduceReads when using scatter/gather. In the argument details of ReduceReads you write for the parameter -nocmp_names:
"... If you scatter/gather there is no guarantee that read name uniqueness will be maintained -- in this case we recommend not compressing."
Do you mean, that if I use scatter/gather, I should use ReduceReads with the -nocmp_names option so that the read names will not be compressed
do you mean that I should not use ReduceReads at all when scatter/gathering.
I assume the first is meant, I just wanted to make sure. Thank you for your time and effort.
