Heads up:
We’re moving the GATK website, docs and forum to a new platform. Read the full story and breakdown of key changes on this blog.
If you happen to see a question you know the answer to, please do chime in and help your fellow community members. We encourage our fourm members to be more involved, jump in and help out your fellow researchers with their questions. GATK forum is a community forum and helping each other with using GATK tools and research is the cornerstone of our success as a genomics research community.We appreciate your help!

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.

Per-allele filters?

I'm doing analysis on a large multi-ancestry project (XX,XXX exomes) in which approximately 20% of variant sites are multi-allelic. Our sequencing/calling is done at the Broad. It seems that at these multi-allelic sites, only one filter is applied. For example, where there is a SNP and an indel, the SNP may get an indel filter.

Is it possible to disclose how the filter at a given site is chosen? (E.g., by severity, etc.) Is there a plan to allow each variant to have its own filter in the future? (Not sure if there is an internal Broad place to discuss this, since it may have to do more with the pipeline and how SNPs and indel calls are combined than the GATK per se.)
