1. Search using the upper-right search box, e.g. using the error message.
2. Try the latest version of tools.
3. Include tool and Java versions.
4. Tell us whether you are following GATK Best Practices.
5. Include relevant details, e.g. platform, DNA- or RNA-Seq, WES (+capture kit) or WGS (PCR-free or PCR+), paired- or single-end, read length, expected average coverage, somatic data, etc.
6. For tool errors, include the error stacktrace as well as the exact command.
7. For format issues, include the result of running ValidateSamFile for BAMs or ValidateVariants for VCFs.
8. For weird results, include an illustrative example, e.g. attach IGV screenshots according to Article#5484.
9. For a seeming variant that is uncalled, include results of following Article#1235.

#### ☞ Did we ask for a bug report?

Then follow instructions in Article#1894.

#### ☞ Formatting tip!

Wrap blocks of code, error messages and BAM/VCF snippets--especially content with hashes (#)--with lines with three backticks (  ) each to make a code block as demonstrated here.

GATK version 4.beta.3 (i.e. the third beta release) is out. See the GATK4 beta page for download and details.

# DepthOfCoverage (without -L option) output

ItalyMember

Hi there!
I tried to analyse the depth of coverage of my exome data using GATK DepthOfCoverage
java -Xmx${heap}m \ -Djava.io.tmpdir=$processed_bam/tmp_folder_dept \ -jar $gatk \ -T DepthOfCoverage \ -omitBaseOutput \ -omitLocusTable \ -R$GRCh37_ref_WholeGenome \ -I $file \ -o$coverage/\${samplename}.coverage.dept
I am not interested in particular genomic regions, so I haven't a target list file.
How were the intervals determined in "_interval_statistics" output file?
Where can I obtain an interval target list file including all exons in the human genome?
Thank you very much!

Hi Geraldine, thanks for your prompt reply!

I think if I set -omitIntervals -omitBaseOutput -omitLocusTable options, I'll obtain no results, isn't it?

I'm not interested in specific intervals, but I would obtain a coverage for all exons. Could it fuction using for the -L option an exon list in bed format downloaded from UCSC?

Don't you know what are the intervals generated in that "_interval_statistics" output?
Source_of_reads from_0_to_1) from_1_to_2) from_2_to_3) from_3_to_4) ...

Thanks!

Ah, ok! It does not matter, It was only a curiosity! However the generated intervals are

 from_0_to_1) ... from_500_to_inf
`

so they don't correspond to chromosomes.

Best regards!

Hah, I guess I remembered wrong! We have a lot of different tools

It must use individual loci then, which is obviously not useful.

Good luck with your work!
