Haplotype caller, multisample calling on set of 9 solid and 1 ilumina sample

WimSWimS Member ✭✭

How does the haplotype caller handle multiple samples? Does it do a local denovo assembly for every sample and then compare those or does it do 1 local denovo assembly using the reads of all the samples?

Can I run the haplotype caller on a set of 9 solid (50bp fragment and 50 x 35 PE) together with 1 ilumina sample (100 x 100 PE) ?

    Hello Geraldine,

    Is there any particular reason you can think of as to why we should not use HaplotypeCaller on SOLiD data?

    No, it should be fine. It's just that we don't work with solid data, so we can't guarantee it works.
