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.
Long REF but not an INDEL?
I'm getting the output from GATK

Why do positions 198904 and 464066 have multiple-base REF but ALT="."? Why did GATK merge them in
a single line unlike other positions_(emit-all sites VCF)_ and still have a duplicated position preceding it?
I thought only indel has an anchor base(position before the event)?
Does ./. mean "same with the reference"?
