We will be out of the office for a Broad Institute event from Dec 10th to Dec 11th 2019. We will be back to monitor the GATK forum on Dec 12th 2019. In the meantime we encourage you to help out other community members with their queries.
Thank you for your patience!

UnifiedGenotyper failure

I have twice run UnifiedGenotyper and the resultant .vcf file contains only part of chromosome 20. I do not see what I am doing wrong. Neither do the other two people in the lab who have extensive experience with GATKcat

    Human error. I had a -L 20 argument in the command that I did not want, but somehow got in (cut and paste?). That is so human and makes me feel so stupid. But it is just the way we are built. We humans see what we expect.. This is exactly why GATK exists, it never overlooks anything it is set to detect. So sorry to bother you and thanks for the response.

    I'm glad your problem is resolved.
