We’re moving the GATK website, docs and forum to a new platform. Read the full story and breakdown of key changes on this blog.
If you happen to see a question you know the answer to, please do chime in and help your fellow community members. We encourage our fourm members to be more involved, jump in and help out your fellow researchers with their questions. GATK forum is a community forum and helping each other with using GATK tools and research is the cornerstone of our success as a genomics research community.We appreciate your help!
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 for a Broad Institute event from Dec 10th to Dec 11th 2019. We will be back to monitor the GATK forum on Dec 12th 2019. In the meantime we encourage you to help out other community members with their queries.
Thank you for your patience!
How to explain a variant present in PON is classified as PASS in the output using MuTect2
How to explain a variant present in PON is classified as PASS in the output (do not filtered as panel_of_nomal) using Mutect2.
The VCF corresponding to this variant in the PON file (called normal.vcf) is
15 9100143 . TG T . PASS AC=16;AF=0.500;AN=32;ECNT=1;MAX_ED=.;MIN_ED=.;NLOD=0.00;RPA=4,3;RU=G;STR;set=Intersection GT:AD:AF:ALT_F1R2:ALT_F2R1:QSS:REF_F1R2:REF_F2R1 0/1:0,65:1.00:34:31:0,2037:0:0 0/1:0,84:1.00:43:41:0,2754:0:0 0/1:0,66:1.00:28:38:0,2082:0:0 0/1:1,46:0.976:17:29:29,1394:0:1 0/1:0,78:1.00:28:50:0,2414:0:0 0/1:0,62:1.00:24:38:0,1862:0:0 0/1:0,74:1.00:29:45:0,2261:0:0 0/1:0,58:1.00:31:27:0,1789:0:0 0/1:0,73:1.00:23:50:0,2219:0:0 0/1:0,56:1.00:20:36:0,1680:0:0 0/1:0,51:1.00:21:30:0,1584:0:0 0/1:0,71:1.00:41:30:0,2197:0:0 0/1:0,66:1.00:37:29:0,2001:0:0 0/1:0,88:1.00:40:48:0,2635:0:0 0/1:0,61:1.00:23:38:0,1898:0:0 0/1:0,40:1.00:15:25:0,1195:0:0
MuTect2 is called as
java -Djava.io.tmpdir=_tmp/javaio -Xmx80G -jar GenomeAnalysisTK.jar -T MuTect2 -nct 20 \
-I:tumor _in/EU1.bam -PON _in/normal.vcf -o _out/EU1.vcf \
-R ../../../REFERENCES/GATKResourceBundle/GRCm38.fa \
-L ../../../REFERENCES/enrichment/Regions.interval_list --dbsnp ../../../REFERENCES/GATKResourceBundle/Mus_musculus.vcf.gz
And the output line is
15 9100143 . TG T . PASS ECNT=1;HCNT=1;MAX_ED=.;MIN_ED=.;NLOD=0.00;RPA=4,3;RU=G;STR;TLOD=182.36 GT:AD:AF:ALT_F1R2:ALT_F2R1:FOXOG:QSS:REF_F1R2:REF_F2R1 0/1:0,60:1.00:29:31:.:0,1895:0:0
Tha same happened in other 14 tumor samples. All of then have called this variant as somatic instead of germline.
Note that the normal.vcf (PON) file was created not just calling normal tissues un --artifact_mode); therefore has genotype field of many samples. ¿Could be this the problem?.
Thank in advance
