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 on November 11th and 13th 2019, due to the U.S. holiday(Veteran's day) and due to a team event(Nov 13th). We will return to monitoring the GATK forum on November 12th and 14th respectively. Thank you for your patience.
Can Mutect2 be applied in tumor only mode for somatic variant detection?
I see in your documentation for Mutect2 you state: "MuTect2 currently only supports the calling of a single tumor-normal pair at a time"
However, it appears to work in tumor only mode as well, at least for the creation of the panel of normals.
My question is can Mutect2 be applied in tumor only mode (simply with no normal provided and not using the artifact_detection_mode flag) to detect accurate somatic variants when a normal sample is not available (similarly to what could be done in mutect1)?
