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.
I perform variant calling on Amplicon Based Targeted Exome sequencing on Human.
I use a licenced version of GATK (V2014.3-3.2.2-7-g f9cba99).
I am using ReadBackedPhasing for obtaining the Phasing information.
After a successful run of the above tool, it displays that Sites phased are 41. (Screenshot attached)
However, in the output file I don't see any variant with a phased genotype.
The ReadBackedPhasing specific arguments provided are as given below:
java -jar ~/software_stack/GenomeAnalysisTK/GenomeAnalysisTK.jar -T ReadBackedPhasing -R ~/reference_stack/reference/human.fasta -I ~/dummydir/out.bam -V ~/dummydir/Sample.vcf -o ~/dummydir/Sample_Phased.vcf
I would also like to know what would be the ideal horizontal as well as vertical coverage (as per the interval file) for Amplicon based Targeted Exome sequencing to carry out a successful Genotype phasing.
Thanks & Regards,
