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.

CNNScoreVariants Hanging in and

I had no issues running CNNScoreVariants when using GATK but as soon as I tried to run the exact same command in or it would get to the part where it says: "INFO CNNScoreVariants - Done initializing engine" and then it appears to just hang with no CPU activity. I even tried to let it go for about 10 minutes with nothing happening.

Below is the command using and it works just fine when I downgrade to I also tried the 1D model and the same issue occurs.

gatk CNNScoreVariants -V test_data.vcf -I test_data.bam -R hg19.fa -O annotated_data.vcf -tensor-type read_tensor

If it matters the Java version is 1.8.0_121
