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.
GATK HaplotypeCaller MNP output problem.
I have a situation here where a clear MNP is not literally emitted by the HaplotypeCaller engine.
The top VCF is where MNP distance is 0 and the bottom is 5. Looks like GATK HC engine is too INDEL centric for this kind of situations where it prefers emitting a GC deletion and an AA insertion rather than TGC - AAT substitution. I am wondering if this could be related to the pairHMM and its limitations in certain transitions (Not allowing 1 transversion and 2 transitions at the same time at the expense of introducing gaps in both sequences) types. And if that's the case I am also wondering if an alternative engine may also be implemented in GATK that does not rely on pairHMM only to detect sequence differences.
I can submit snippets of this if you would like to check.
