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.
We will be out of the office on November 11th and 13th 2019, due to the U.S. holiday(Veteran's day) and due to a team event(Nov 13th). We will return to monitoring the GATK forum on November 12th and 14th respectively. Thank you for your patience.

Should intervals overlap for the GenotypeGVCF step when calling genotypes on RNAseq data?

NiekdeKleinNiekdeKlein GroningenMember

I have gVCFs from RNAseq data and want to run GenotypeGVCF on multiple intervals per chromosome. Although the reads are mostly only from exons I still want to run GenotypeGVCF on the complete chromosome. For exome sequencing it is suggested to add -ip for the padding around genes, but since I want to include the whole chromosome I'm not sure if I should overlap the intervals or make them adjacent, and if I should add padding or not.

e.g. should it be




and should -ip be set to 0 or not?

Thanks for your help!
