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.
This section of the forum is now closed; we are working on a new support model for WDL that we will share here shortly. For Cromwell-specific issues, see the Cromwell docs and post questions on Github.
