Genotype Quality scale

evagserraevagserra Cambridge, UKMember


Does anyone know what is the upper scale (if there is one!) of the genotype quality score (GQ) in the format field? I know that sites with GQ < 20 are normally not reliable but was wondering what is the maximum limit seen as the mean of GQ for PASS variants in my study is around 90 and am considering that to be pretty good?

Thanks a lot!
