GATK 3.7 HaplotypeCaller out vcf format
I just want to confirm what I got back from HaplotypeCaller (GATK 3.7) is correct format, it is VCF4.2 format, however, after following the best practice, I have a vcf file with the GT field with "/" not "|", according to the VCF4.2 format, the "/" means unphased genotype, however, haplotypeCaller should provide haplotype calls instead of genotypes right? Should I use the results as unphased or phased?
Here are couple lines from the vcf file generated.
