GATK CallSegments

I see CallSegments mentioned in a few tutorials and posts. However, there does not seem to be any documentation for it. Is it possible to get more info? Is that basically the next version of ReCapSeg?

    Thanks for clarifying! Do you have any benchmarks or comparisons for the GATK4 CNV tools? Were they introduced to make GATK more comprehensive or are there clear advantages to current methods?

    Both, actually. We wanted all our tools under the GATK umbrella. But there are also some key advantages for computational efficiency and scalability.
