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.
I'm trying to calculate depth of coverage for entire contigs for multiple samples. I have ran the following command:
java -Xmx2g -jar GenomeAnalysisTK.jar \
-R Ecoli/Ecoli.allSubTypes.fasta \
-T DepthOfCoverage \
-o ../Ecoli/all.tmpOut \
-I Ecoli/bamlist.list \
Where I've tried to generate a refSeq file with one line per contig.
I was expecting to have the output be in the form of a matrix with the various contigs as rows and the samples as columns.
Instead I got this looking file:
Locus Total_Depth Average_Depth_sample Depth_for_sample1
gi|312944605|gb|CP001855.1|:1 0 0.00 0

gi|312944605|gb|CP001855.1|:9 0 0.00 0
were each base is a row. right?
What am I doing wrong?
