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!
Stars in GT, incompatible with SnpSift
I have questions about the combination genotypeGVCFs/SelectVariants.
I have some loci with the genotype 0/2 for some samples, 0/1 for other.. There is thus two different alleles , but the corresponding ALT is for example « G,*_». If the nucleotide G corresponds to 0/1, to what corresponds exactly the 0/2 ? Said otherly, what does this star mean ?
How to correctly extract the variants for each sample from the combined vcf ? For a given sample, my command line is :
java -jar GenomeAnalysisTK.jar -T SelectVariants -R hg19_min_oldM.fa -V Combined.vcf -o Sample.vcf --excludeNonVariants -sn Sample
Nevertheless, it gives a vcf which is not exploitable by SnpSift extractFields because of theses stars.
- last question : I read that a downsampling is effectuated by SelectVariants, but I do not understand what it means. As you guess, I really want to conserve all the variants that have been called by HaplotypeCaller, so I don't want SelectVariants to perform an other thing that extracting all the variants from each sample....
Sorry for all these questions... but thanks by advance to who will help me !
