Heads up:
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.

IntervalListTools UNION corner case: doesn't keep all name fields if merged coordinates are same

myourshawmyourshaw University of ColoradoMember ✭✭

When IntervalListTools UNION encounters two records with identical coordinates but different name fields, it outputs a single record with only one of the original name fields. E.g.

chr1    2228866 2228866 +   NM_003036.3(SKI):c.100G>A
chr1    2228866 2228866 +   NM_003036.3(SKI):c.100G>T


chr1    2228866 2228866 +   NM_003036.3(SKI):c.100G>A

whereas this is expected:

chr1    2228866 2228866 +   NM_003036.3(SKI):c.100G>A|NM_003036.3(SKI):c.100G>T

The expected, name-concatenating, behavior works when the coordinates to be merged are not identical:

chr1    11992659    11992659    +   NM_014874.3(MFN2):c.280C>T
chr1    11992660    11992660    +   NM_014874.3(MFN2):c.281G>A


chr1    11992659    11992660    +   NM_014874.3(MFN2):c.280C>T|NM_014874.3(MFN2):c.281G>A
