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.

Panel of Normals for RNA-Seq Samples

Brunods10Brunods10 AugustaMember
Hello. Is it appropriate to use the 1000g panel of normals (1000g_pon.hg38.vcf.gz) when working with RNA-Seq samples? I've been looking for more information about the 1000g PoN and have not found much.

Specifically, I am using the 1000g PoN in tumor-only mode with RNA-Seq tumor samples. I have used STAR 2-pass alignment and the somatic variant calling best-practices pipeline on a few dozen samples. I unexpectedly saw hundreds of variants shared by the samples. Is there anything wrong with using the 1000g PoN with RNA-Seq generated BAM files in tumor-only mode?

Best,
Bruno
