  • GATK - RealignerTargetCreator ? need to run for all samples in the same experiment ?

    Hi,

    Lets say I have 20 bams derived form the same targetted sequencing experiment, and I want to push them through the recommended GATK pipleine.

    For the RealignerTargetCreator part of realigning around sites of common indels, should I be running it per sample, or can I run it once against one sample and then use the list filethat it generates against all the other bams from the same experiment, on the basis that since the same regions are being sequenced per sample, the same recurrent indel sites will crop up in each sample.

    ... or have I minunderstood what the intervals.list file that RealignerTargetCreator defines?

    Thanks

    Depends a bit on your coverage. I would do both steps on all bams together unless you have really high coverage (i.e. >100 average).

      My bams are derived from small targeted resequencings experiments, but coverage can be high (several thousand)
      So I make it that I can merge bams (each identified with its own read group) then run all the GATK indel realignment steps on the merged bam.

      Can I run all of the GATK steps on one merged bam also?

      Thanks

        and the answer is that I had assumed correctly that RealignerTargetCretor needs only running once a described here:
        http://gatkforums.broadinstitute.org...-around-indels
        using -knownsOnly mode, which I assume only looks for indels in the reference files you supply.

        I guess that if I dont specify -knownsOnly then it must look for novel indels, which might be a good thing, I'lll have to investigate the overhead that creates first though.

          If you have that high coverage, I would process them one by one for the realignment; all together for the creation of the recalalibration table and one by one again for the second step of the recalibration.

          You can give multipe bams as input to the GATK so no need to merge the files beforehand.
          Use the -L option with your target bed file to speed up things.

          I would recommend looking for novel indels also.

            Exploring the Dynamics of the Tumor Microenvironment
            by seqadmin




            The complexity of cancer is clearly demonstrated in the diverse ecosystem of the tumor microenvironment (TME). The TME is made up of numerous cell types and its development begins with the changes that happen during oncogenesis. “Genomic mutations, copy number changes, epigenetic alterations, and alternative gene expression occur to varying degrees within the affected tumor cells,” explained Andrea O’Hara, Ph.D., Strategic Technical Specialist at Azenta. “As...

            Exploring Human Diversity Through Large-Scale Omics
            by seqadmin


            In 2003, researchers from the Human Genome Project (HGP) announced the most comprehensive genome to date1. Although the genome wasn’t fully completed until nearly 20 years later2, numerous large-scale projects, such as the International HapMap Project and 1000 Genomes Project, continued the HGP's work, capturing extensive variation and genomic diversity within humans. Recently, newer initiatives have significantly increased in scale and expanded beyond genomics, offering a more detailed...
