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.
depth of coverage from gVCF files
I have a large number of gVCF files, either single samples or combined in approximately 100 samples per combined gVCF file.
I would like to compute something like the average depth for a set of regions of interest from the combined or single gVCF files.
I can see that I could try to get a VCF output at every position, and use that to infer the percentage with a given read depth, but that seems mightily cumbersome.
So my question: is there an equivalent to the DepthOfCoverage GATK module that takes as input gVCF files? ideally combined gVCF and extract per sample average/median/minimum depth but otherwise I can work with single sample gVCF data.
Thank you in advance
