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.
We will be out of the office for a Broad Institute event from Dec 10th to Dec 11th 2019. We will be back to monitor the GATK forum on Dec 12th 2019. In the meantime we encourage you to help out other community members with their queries.
Thank you for your patience!

Converting ModelSegments outputs for ABSOLUTE


I work on exome data to detect somatic variants. I identified the SNPs/Indels with Mutect2 and I followed the ModelSegments tutorial to detect CNAs. Now I want to convert the AF outputs I got with ModelSegments into AllelicCapSeg outputs to use them with ABSOLUTE.

For this purpose, I tried to use part of this pipeline on GitHub (unsupported/combine_tracks_postprocessing_cnv/combine_tracks.wdl) to convert the data with the function "convert_model_segments_to_alleliccapseg". I use as input the.af.param and.cr.seg files from ModelSegments.

However, I don't really understand in the script the utility of the following parameters to use as threshold values (Float ? maf90_threshold and Int ? min_hets_acs_results)?

Is there a better way to do this conversion?

Thank you

    Hi @Lea_F ,

    This is one of the few workflows in the GATK repo we do not support. We can help you with questions on workflows outside of the "unsupported" directory.
