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.
IndelRealigner and --downsample_to_coverage / -dcov
I ran the IndelRealigner tool with this option: --downsample_to_coverage 100000. i see this output line, which leads me to believe the downsample option was recognized:
INFO 09:42:26,159 GenomeAnalysisEngine - Downsampling Settings: Method: BY_SAMPLE, Target Coverage: 100000
yet, i also see multiple lines like this in the output:
INFO 09:43:59,101 IndelRealigner - Not attempting realignment in interval gi|224589819:117115017-117313719:44370-44521 because there are too many reads.
i thought the downsampling would alleviate excluding regions where too many reads are present? i do believe the regions are being excluded because the IndelRealigner tool completes quickly, as compare to runs i've made when i've set the max to align to 100000.
to be explicit, i want all regions included in processing, and i'm willing to down sample to make this happen.
thanks for the help.
