gatk4-germline-snps-indels workflow - cannot find resources for b37

I am using https://github.com/gatk-workflows/gatk4-germline-snps-indels and have managed to run this successfully for hg38! Thanks :) This makes my life so much easier!

I now need to run this for b37. I managed to find the necessary files for the HaplotypeCaller workflow input json in the broad ftp resource bundle however, for the JointDiscovery workflow input json (https://github.com/gatk-workflows/gatk4-germline-snps-indels/blob/master/joint-discovery-gatk4.hg38.wgs.inputs.json) I was not able to find the two corresponding files for b37 available for hg38:

  "JointGenotyping.eval_interval_list": "gs://broad-references/hg38/v0/wgs_evaluation_regions.hg38.interval_list",
  "JointGenotyping.unpadded_intervals_file": "gs://gatk-test-data/intervals/hg38.even.handcurated.20k.intervals",

Would be a big help if you would be able to point me towards the corresponding files for b37.

Thanks so much,

    Hi Alon,

    It looks like we provide an interval list here for b37.

    Hi Sheila,

    Are you referring to wgs_calling_regions.v1.interval_list? I assume this corresponds to wgs_evaluation-regions.hg38.interval_list.

    What about for hg38.even.handcurafed.20k.intervals? Is there a file for b37 that correspond to that file?

    Thanks a lot,
