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.
Does GenotypeGVCFs call SNPs fixed in only 1 sample?
Apologies if this was addressed elsewhere, but I have looked carefully through the documentation. Simply put: using the joint analysis pipeline of GATK's HaplotypeCaller (-ERC GVCF) -> CombineGVCFs-> GenotypeGVCFs, are SNPs called when they are fixed in only 1 sample? For example, imagine 3 samples total, where the correct genotypes should be: A/A, A/A, T/T. Will this variant be called correctly, given sufficient coverage/quality? This is very important to what I am trying to accomplish, as I only have 3 samples, and would like to analyze SNPs that are fixed between samples. It's unclear to me that this pipeline will work, since HaplotypeCaller will not see any find these variants within samples individually. But maybe GenotypeGVCFs finds them? This is not clearly documented.
