Heads up:
We’re moving the GATK website, docs and forum to a new platform. Read the full story and breakdown of key changes on this blog.
If you happen to see a question you know the answer to, please do chime in and help your fellow community members. We encourage our fourm members to be more involved, jump in and help out your fellow researchers with their questions. GATK forum is a community forum and helping each other with using GATK tools and research is the cornerstone of our success as a genomics research community.We appreciate your help!

Test-drive the GATK tools and Best Practices pipelines on Terra

Check out this blog post to learn how you can get started with GATK and try out the pipelines in preconfigured workspaces (with a user-friendly interface!) without having to install anything.

Does Oncotator support multicore processing?

Yes, Oncotator supports multicore processing, but only for the initialization of certain datasources (gene_tsv, gp_tsv, and transcript_tsv). If multicore functionality is activated (the default), Oncotator will initialize 4 separate processes for initializing datasources. Datasources without multicore support are initialized serially before the datasources that can be initialized in parallel.

For Broadies using Firehose:

Oncotator in Firehose does not use multicore processing. The --no-multicore flag is specified in the Oncotator_v1 module.
