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.
RADseq data and GATK
I am pretty new to bioinformatics- mostly just have taken one class.
I have been handed some RADseq data and we want to do some SNP variant calling. I am trying to make sure that I use GATK correctly- at present we only have about 250 libraries, but we should end up with at least twice that many, possibly three times.
I have aligned the reads to a reference genome, sorted and indexed them, and am now ready for HaplotypeCaller. We do not have SNP location information, so I was going to follow the Troubleshooting guide by using GATK to de novo call SNPs, feed that information to recalibrate based on quality scores, and then re-run Haplotype caller. I did not do the dedup step due to the nature of the data.
I am trying to make sure that I am using the correct options. What I have is:
java -jar GenomeAnalysisTK.jar \
-T HaplotypeCaller \
-R reference.fa \
-I preprocessed_reads.bam \
--genotyping_mode DISCOVERY \
-stand_emit_conf 10 \
-stand_call_conf 30 \
Any help would be greatly appreciated
