2. Try the latest version of tools.
3. Include tool and Java versions.
4. Tell us whether you are following GATK Best Practices.
5. Include relevant details, e.g. platform, DNA- or RNA-Seq, WES (+capture kit) or WGS (PCR-free or PCR+), paired- or single-end, read length, expected average coverage, somatic data, etc.
6. For tool errors, include the error stacktrace as well as the exact command.
7. For format issues, include the result of running ValidateSamFile for BAMs or ValidateVariants for VCFs.
8. For weird results, include an illustrative example, e.g. attach IGV screenshots according to Article#5484.
9. For a seeming variant that is uncalled, include results of following Article#1235.

☞ Did we ask for a bug report?

Then follow instructions in Article#1894.

☞ Formatting tip!

Wrap blocks of code, error messages and BAM/VCF snippets--especially content with hashes (#)--with lines with three backticks ( ` ) each to make a code block as demonstrated here.

GATK version 4.beta.3 (i.e. the third beta release) is out. See the GATK4 beta page for download and details.

UnifiedGenotyper - pooled data - multiple samples - ploidy of one pooled sample or all?

Member

Thank you for developing a great set of tools and adding in the ploidy option to the UnifiedGenotyper! My question is in regards to the ploidy argument when calling multiple pooled samples together. If I have pooled samples from the same population at different time points and want to call SNPs with multiple sample awareness, do I use the ploidy of one sample or that of all samples. For example, if I have pooled samples of approximately 25 haploid genomes each from three different time points from the same population should I use 25 or 75 as my ploidy?
