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.
Memory error - Downsampling unavailable (3.5
I am working on mitochondrial genomes (250 samples) with a coverage of ~7000x.
The HC (v 3.5) is running perfectly for the firsts 248 samples but reaching the last ones, the following Java error appears :
##### ERROR MESSAGE: An error occurred because you did not provide enough memory to run this program. You can use the -Xmx argument (before the -jar argument) to adjust the maximum heap size provided to Java. Note that this is a JVM argument, not a GATK argument.
All the other samples work perfectly with ~64G of mem and v_mem so i tried 128G but it is still not sufficient for my last samples to be processed. As you probably understand, i can't extend the memory indefinitely and I would want to know if it exists a way to force the down-sampling or at least to greatly ameliorate the memory used by the HaplotypeCaller.
Thanks for your time,
