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 on November 11th and 13th 2019, due to the U.S. holiday(Veteran's day) and due to a team event(Nov 13th). We will return to monitoring the GATK forum on November 12th and 14th respectively. Thank you for your patience.

GenomicsDBimport multijob issue

I'm having a strange problem with GenomicsDBImport. I'm trying to call SNPs for the full genome, so I've been importing my g.vcfs into a GenomicsDB database per chromosome. Each chromosome is a different job, which I've been launching simultaneously. Each job uses the same set of samples, but is for a different part of the genome. My issue is that when launching the jobs simultaneously, only the first job prints correctly, while the others seem to run but don't give any output. The jobs that don't print correctly, only output a file named "__tiledb_workspace.tdb", which is empty. Despite this, the non-printing jobs seem to continue running and produce a log file saying it worked. If I wait a bit, and launch the jobs separately, they run concurrently fine.

For reference, I'm using GATK 4.beta.3-SNAPSHOT, and I'm launching jobs on a slurm job management system.
