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 order of merge and mark duplicate
I have a whole genome sequencing sample.
That consist of 1fastq file per lane.
That consist of multiple file per sample that produced per lane.
After I merge multiple bams, I progress MarkDuplicates using Picard.
But MarkDuplicates is very slow.
So I want to progress MarkDupllicate using bam per lane, then merge bam files.
I wonder whether the order of merge and MarkDuplicate affect post-analysis?
