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.
GATK - HaplotypeCaller is so slow, is this normal??
I have 15 exome-seq samples, and have been using BWA-PiCard-GATK pipeline to do the variant calling. I did not realize GATK is so slow until I have to analyze this large number of samples. In this HaplotypeCaller step, each sample seems to take at least 2 days (48+ hours). Is this normal is there's something I did wrong? Below is my command, is there anything wrong or GATK-HaplotypeCaller is known this slooooow?
java -Xmx10g -Djava.awt.headless=true -jar
-T HaplotypeCaller \
-minPruning 3 \
-dcov 10 \
-R ./GATK_ref/hg19.fasta \
-I ./GATK/BQSR/sample1_realign.recal.compressed.bam \
Is there anything I did wrong with this command? or anything I can change to make it run faster? I am using GATK 2.5 by the way. thanks!
