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.
The PlotInsertSizeDistributions generates plots of the insert size
distributions of each sequencing library.
For sequencing libraries with paired reads, one can measure the empirical
distribution of the lengths of the DNA fragments in the library. Genome STRiP
measures and models these insert size distributions and uses the modeled
distributions for discovery and for genotyping. This utility plots the insert
size distributions as modeled by Genome STRiP.
2. Inputs / Arguments
-I <histogram-file>: The input binary histogram file containing the
insert size distribution data [required]. : Currently only isd.hist.bin files
are supported (not the reduced representation isd.dist.bin files).
-library <library-ID>: The library or libraries to plot (this argument
may be specified multiple times or as a .list file with extension .list
containing one library ID per line).
-sample <sample-ID>: The sample or samples to plot (this argument may be
specified multiple times or as a .list file with extension .list containing
one sample ID per line).
-O <output-file>: The destination output file (PDF) [required].
