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!
IndelRealigner and --downsample_to_coverage / -dcov
I ran the IndelRealigner tool with this option: --downsample_to_coverage 100000. i see this output line, which leads me to believe the downsample option was recognized:
INFO 09:42:26,159 GenomeAnalysisEngine - Downsampling Settings: Method: BY_SAMPLE, Target Coverage: 100000
yet, i also see multiple lines like this in the output:
INFO 09:43:59,101 IndelRealigner - Not attempting realignment in interval gi|224589819:117115017-117313719:44370-44521 because there are too many reads.
i thought the downsampling would alleviate excluding regions where too many reads are present? i do believe the regions are being excluded because the IndelRealigner tool completes quickly, as compare to runs i've made when i've set the max to align to 100000.
to be explicit, i want all regions included in processing, and i'm willing to down sample to make this happen.
thanks for the help.
