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.

I'm trying to run the CNV pipeline on an SGE active login, on just one major chromosome (200 inds). I notice that the unmapped scaffolds are still incorporated at least in the initial stages of analysis. The script fails in stage 1, at one of the unmapped scaffolds, seq_chrUn_DS484773v1. Does anyone have any idea what's causing this.

    Hi Will, I moved this to the GenomeStrip section as we (GATK support) can't help with this problem.

    Ta, could've sworn I put this in genomestrip.

    Never mind on that last point, I see that you've already discussed this in prior questions.

    @cwhelan Thanks Chris, very informative. I guess the problem with trying to use -intervalList was due to not having a reference bundle, or only having custom masking and parameters files for the whole genome rather than for each chromosome .. but that doesn't matter now anyway hopefully if I can just use -L like with the deletion pipeline.
