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.
Question of single calling and total calling
I met a question when I used the GATK pipeline.
When I perform single calling for my Sample A & B, I get the results like:
Sample A Chr01 2245 . A C,G 171.31 PASS ... GT:AD:DP:GQ:PL 1/2:0,1,6:7:1:221,202,199,19,0,1
Sample B Chr01 2245 . A G 192.84 PASS ... GT:AD:DP:GQ:PL 1/1:0,8:8:18:221,18,0
These results are different.
However, when I perform total calling for these two samples simultaneously, at that chromosone-position, I get this result:
Chr01 2245 . A G 387.43 . .... GT:AD:DP:GQ:PL 1/1:0,6:7:18:220,18,0(A) 1/1:0,8:8:18:221,18,0(B)
So that the SNP of Sample A is no longer C/G but just a G.
I don't clearly know how it works out.
Thanks for any help from your team.
