Trimming a GVCF with "-L"
I currently have many WES gVCFs called with GATK 3.x HaplotypeCaller, and I'm now looking to combine them and run GenotypeGVCFs. Unfortunately, I forgot to add the "-L" argument to HC to reduce the size of the resulting gVCFs, and CombineGVCFs looks like it's taking much longer than I expect it to.
Is there any potential problem with using the "-L" argument to SelectVariants to reduce the size of my gVCFs and then use those smaller gVCFs in the CombineGVCFs stage (and beyond), or do I have to re-call HaplotypeCaller again? Would it be better to extend the boundaries of the target file by a certain amount to avoid recalling HaplotypeCaller?
