  • GATK variant calling statistics...

    Hi all,
    We are calling variants on partial exome data using GATK. We want to see what fraction of our samples have a particular variant. As constituted, GATK will give us the set of samples containing the particular variant. Any sample that doesn't will simply exclude it from the VCF. My question is whether or not there is a way to distinguish the samples that have a true wild-type phenotype (and thus no variant call) from those that aren't called due to poor quality score (and thus should be excluded from our percentages since the phenotype cannot be determined). Thank you very much in advance for your help.

    There are two ways to deal with this. One is to use the EMIT_ALL_SITES option of UnifiedGenotyper and enable calculation of reference PLs. The other, which is better, is to call variants with HalpotypeCaller (GATK's newer variant caller) and use the -ERC option to generate a gVCF.

    For more details, see the online GATK documentation and please post any follow-up questions on the GATK support forum.

      Recent Advances in Sequencing Analysis Tools
      by seqadmin


      The sequencing world is rapidly changing due to declining costs, enhanced accuracies, and the advent of newer, cutting-edge instruments. Equally important to these developments are improvements in sequencing analysis, a process that converts vast amounts of raw data into a comprehensible and meaningful form. This complex task requires expertise and the right analysis tools. In this article, we highlight the progress and innovation in sequencing analysis by reviewing several of the...

      Essential Discoveries and Tools in Epitranscriptomics
      by seqadmin




      The field of epigenetics has traditionally concentrated more on DNA and how changes like methylation and phosphorylation of histones impact gene expression and regulation. However, our increased understanding of RNA modifications and their importance in cellular processes has led to a rise in epitranscriptomics research. “Epitranscriptomics brings together the concepts of epigenetics and gene expression,” explained Adrien Leger, PhD, Principal Research Scientist...
