Mutect2 --artifact_detection_mode

could anyone share how Mutect2 identifies artifacts? I suppose those are from sequencing/mapping errors.

    Thanks! Here is the line > "If several normals in a PON share the same low-frequency calls, they're probably artifacts."

    How come I don't see the "select as answer" option?

    Seems the Vanilla site is experiencing a number of oddities. Thanks for letting us know.

    For some reason (probable oversight on my part) the category settings allowed you to post this as a "Discussion" instead of as a "Question". Only the latter type gets the "select as answer" option. Switched the type and fixed the setting so this should be all good now. Thanks for the report.
