  • GATK DepthOfCoverage at high depth

    I have a sample on which custom capture was done. Many of the baits have >2000x coverage.

    When running DepthOfCoverage initially I never saw values >500x but then noticed I forgot to set the bins bigger. I set them at 20,000 just to be safe, now no values go over 1000...I really don't get why.
    I even set a summaryCoverageThreshold at 1200 and it's always 0.

    With genome browser I can clearly see some baits at >2000 even some at 5000.

    Any ideas

    Here's the command:
    Code:
    java -jar /data/solexa/aligners/GenomeAnalysisTK-1.0.5777/GenomeAnalysisTK.jar -T DepthOfCoverage -R human_hg19.fasta -I sample.bam -o sample.targetCoverage -L all.interval_list --minMappingQuality 15 --minBaseQuality 10 --omitDepthOutputAtEachBase --logging_level ERROR --summaryCoverageThreshold 30 --summaryCoverageThreshold 50 --summaryCoverageThreshold 200 --summaryCoverageThreshold 500 --summaryCoverageThreshold 700 --summaryCoverageThreshold 1000 --summaryCoverageThreshold 1200 --summaryCoverageThreshold 2000 --start 1 --stop 20000 --nBins 19999

    I finally found my answer.

    By default GATK downsamples by sample. The downsampling coverage is...drum roll...1000.

    To fix this set the number of bins *AND* set -dt NONE

    Why one would downsample when computing coverage is beyond me.

      Thanks! looks like this also happens in the Unified Genotyper in reporting the AD and DP numbers. I was struggling to explain why the DP did not match the coverage at the position and if the quality filters were being too stringent!

        Current Approaches to Protein Sequencing
        by seqadmin


        Proteins are often described as the workhorses of the cell, and identifying their sequences is key to understanding their role in biological processes and disease. Currently, the most common technique used to determine protein sequences is mass spectrometry. While still a valuable tool, mass spectrometry faces several limitations and requires a highly experienced scientist familiar with the equipment to operate it. Additionally, other proteomic methods, like affinity assays, are constrained...

        Strategies for Sequencing Challenging Samples
        by seqadmin


        Despite advancements in sequencing platforms and related sample preparation technologies, certain sample types continue to present significant challenges that can compromise sequencing results. Pedro Echave, Senior Manager of the Global Business Segment at Revvity, explained that the success of a sequencing experiment ultimately depends on the amount and integrity of the nucleic acid template (RNA or DNA) obtained from a sample. “The better the quality of the nucleic acid isolated...
