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.
The 2013 "best practices" workshop slides recommend running PhaseByTransmission followed by ReadBackedPhasing --respectPhaseInput.
The --respectPhaseInput option is not currently listed in the documentation. Does that mean that RBP now always respects phasing in the input VCF?
Does (or did) --respectPhaseInput cause phased sites in the input to be assumed correct, or are they just ignored? That is, does RBP --respectPhaseInput use the partial haplotypes from the input file as evidence?
