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.

Is there a discussion of this forum (or elsewhere) of the considerations in choosing -GQB values?

Many considerations could go into the choice of number of '-GQB' bands and their boundaries.
I am hoping that an initial discussion of these may have occurred.

    Hi Chuck,

    We have the basic default values for bands, however, it really is up to you to decide which band cutoffs are to apply. The best thing would be to experiment with different values and see which works best for you.
