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.

All de-novo mutations are 0/1 from genotype refinement workflow

I have a vcf from a trio and ran genotype refinement workflow by following the steps described at:

My purpose was to identify the new mutations in the child compared to the parents. The final step I ran was:

gatk --java-options "-Xmx100g" VariantAnnotator -R ${genome_fasta} -V input_trioGP_GQfiltered.vcf -A PossibleDeNovo -ped trio.ped -o input_trioGP_GQfiltered_deNovos.vcf

All the mutations annotated as "hiConfDeNovo" or "loConfDeNovo" have the same genotypes in the trio: 0/1 in child and 0/0 in parents. Is this normal? I was expecting some sites like 0/2 (in child) 0/1 (in parents) would also be picked. Are multi-allele sites simply omitted by this tool?
