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.

Maximum number of files with GATK CombineVariants ?

ekofmanekofman Member, Broadie

We are trying to merge 8614 VCF files using CombineVariants and it's failing with this error on file ~4020ish of our list of 8614.

ERROR MESSAGE: Unable to create BasicFeatureReader using feature file , for input source: /xchip/

Is there a limit to the number of files mergeable with this tool? Can we get around this?
