Different total Indel and SNPs after selection

gisv71gisv71 SingaporeMember

Hi, I used HaplotypeCaller to call Indels and SNPs on my 30 samples and I separated the SNPs and Indels into 2 different files using SelectVariant tool.
I got 1954 SNPs and Indels in combination (in raw files), but after selection, I got only 277 indels and 1666 SNPs (in total only 1943, different from its raw file).
Why is it happening?
Many thanks before.

    Hi, Sheila.

    Exactly like you said, the sites are all mixed SNP/indel.
    Thank you so much for your answer.

    Kindest regards,
