MuTect2 tumorOnly vs paired loses true variants
Hi GATK team !
I have an issue with MuTect2. I'm using GATK last version (nighlty build from 16th of March) in a somatic context on an amplicon design.
I have a variant that I know is true one (although the depth of coverage at this position is quite low in the somatic context).
MuTect does call the variant when in tumor only mode : first one if the 3 here

It seems like it considers the 3 variants to be clustered and on the same haplotype, that may be important for my issue ? Although 222 from 263 is already quite far away..
When calling in paired mode, feeding it with the recalibrated germline bam file, I have no variants left, even though neither of these 3 variants is a germline one.
Could you please tell my the reason why those variants are filtered out ? Is there a parameter I should play with ?
thanks a lot
