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.
Getting a Large VCF File output on Variant call
I am using the following set of commands on GATK2.1.13 to generate a VCF file
echo `java -Xmx20g -jar /usr/bin/GenomeAnalysisTK.jar -I B2_with_ReadGroup.ddup.sorted.bam -R human_g1k_v37.fasta -T RealignerTargetCreator -o my.intervals -et NO_ET -K /root/sandbox/saket.kumar_iitb.ac.in.key` echo "Realignment Done at `date`" echo "Starting IndelRealigner at `date`" echo `java -Xmx20g -jar /usr/bin/GenomeAnalysisTK.jar -I B2_with_ReadGroup.ddup.sorted.bam -R human_g1k_v37.fasta -T IndelRealigner -targetIntervals my.intervals -o myrealignedBam.bam -et NO_ET -K /root/sandbox/saket.kumar_iitb.ac.in.key` echo "Realignment done at `date`" echo "Starting UnifiedGenotyper at `date`" echo `java -Xmx20g -jar /usr/bin/GenomeAnalysisTK.jar -l INFO -R human_g1k_v37.fasta -T UnifiedGenotyper -I myrealignedBam.bam -o mygatk_vcf.vcf --output_mode EMIT_ALL_SITES -et NO_ET -K /root/sandbox/saket.kumar_iitb.ac.in.key` echo "Gentoypxing complete at `date`"
When i do a 'mpileup' for B2_with_ReadGroup.ddup.sorted.bam , I get a devcent 10 MB VCF file. But on the last ste of the above pipeline, my " mygatk_vcf.vcf " is goinging into 81GBs !!
Do you know what is wrong ?
