MuTect detection abilities
I am wondering if MuTect is able to detect loss of one allele in the case where the normal sample is heterozygous (AB) and then tumor sample would contain only A or only B allele. Would MuTect keep it as a possible mutation or filter it out? If these mutations are kept are they then marked in a specific way so that it's easier to look for them in the output file?
Thank you in advance for any help.
All the best.
