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.

High Ti/Tv values

christyvjchristyvj MelbourneMember

Hi there.
We are trying to run VariantRecalibrator (SNP mode) on a set of ~4000 cattle WGS samples (Bos Taurus & Bos Indicus). We are using GATK v3.8. We seem to be getting quite high Ti/Tv values (I have pasted the .tranches file and VariantRecalibrator command below).
We have run the same pipeline on ~3000 Bos Taurus samples and got normal Ti/Tv values of around 1.9 - 2.2.
From my reading, having Ti/Tv too low results in too many false positives. Is it an issue if Ti/Tv is too high? What could be the possible consequence of this? If it is an issue, do you have any suggestions as to how to reduce the Ti/Tv values.
Thank you in advance.
