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 resource bundles scattered_calling_intervals exclude small contigs
I was just going over some Haplotypecaller and VQSR results generated using your best practices Cromwell workflows, and found that the scattered_calling_intervals files you provide (and which those workflows use to operate over) do not cover the whole genome. For hg38, chrM and all of the alt/unplaced contigs are excluded. For b37, chrY is also excluded.
This seems like a fairly major bug that would cause people running your best practices to lose a good number of potentially important variants.
