Very long run-time - GATK HaplotypeCaller GVCF with Ion proton reads

HyunminHyunmin Seoul, KoreaMember

I analyzing the proton reads using GATK Haplotypecaller.

but I have an very long run-time to analyze this data with below command.

gatk -Xmx48g -T HaplotypeCaller -nct 8 -R hg19.fasta -I IonXpress_022_R_2014_03_25_00_24_38_user_PRO-28-20140325_TS13217-070A-WD_1_Auto_user_PRO-28-20140325_TS13217-070A-WD_1_54.bam --genotyping_mode DISCOVERY -stand_emit_conf 10 -stand_call_conf 30 --emitRefConfidence GVCF -L /BiO/BioPeople/brandon/test_nextflow/proton_multisample/ref/AmpliSeqExome.20131001.designed.bed -o IonXpress_022_R_2014_03_25_00_24_38_user_PRO-28-20140325_TS13217-070A-WD_1_Auto_user_PRO-28-20140325_TS13217-070A-WD_1_54.g.vcf

The stderr message is..

I think 19 day is abnormal time with targeted exome data.

Is it normal? or any suggestion?

Thanks in advance!
