Heads up:
We’re moving the GATK website, docs and forum to a new platform. Read the full story and breakdown of key changes on this blog.
If you happen to see a question you know the answer to, please do chime in and help your fellow community members. We encourage our fourm members to be more involved, jump in and help out your fellow researchers with their questions. GATK forum is a community forum and helping each other with using GATK tools and research is the cornerstone of our success as a genomics research community.We appreciate your help!

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.
We will be out of the office for a Broad Institute event from Dec 10th to Dec 11th 2019. We will be back to monitor the GATK forum on Dec 12th 2019. In the meantime we encourage you to help out other community members with their queries.
Thank you for your patience!

Developing truth sets for VQSR

I am working with macaque WGS and WES data and I'm trying to implement VQSR effectively. In the NHP genomics community there aren't large databases of validated true variant so we're attempting to create our own sets using high quality amplicon and genotyping data that exists within our own lab. My question is how many variants is VQSR expecting to create an effective gaussian mixture model? Do you have any advice as to how to develop a reasonably sized truth set in the absence of databases like dbsnp, hapmap, ect?

Thank you,
