We’re moving the GATK website, docs and forum to a new platform. Read the full story and breakdown of key changes on this blog.
If you happen to see a question you know the answer to, please do chime in and help your fellow community members. We encourage our fourm members to be more involved, jump in and help out your fellow researchers with their questions. GATK forum is a community forum and helping each other with using GATK tools and research is the cornerstone of our success as a genomics research community.We appreciate your help!
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.
[GATK4 beta] no filter-passing variants in Mutect2 tumor-only runs using default parameters
I would like to ask your advice on the tumor only mode of Mutect.
I ran GATK4 beta.3's Mutect on 20 tumor samples using tumor-only mode, and found no variant passing filters. Every variant is filtered out after running FilterMutectCalls tool. It seems that germline risk is estimated very high overall.
Mutect2 was executed using the scripts/mutect2_wdl/mutect2_multi_sample.wdl in the GATK source repository. gnomAD is given for the population af source and default parameters are used.
I'd appreciate it if you would help run tumor-only mode of Mutect.
FYI, 10^P_GERMLINE (log10 posterior probability for alt allele to be germline variants in INFO) of a tumor sample distributes as below. Outliers are not plotted for the sake of simplicity.

(Additionally, no toolbar button works on this 'ask a question' page I am writing this question. (such as bold, italic, file upload buttons) Is it just me?)
