I am trying to do the variant calling on pooled samples. For that, I am using CRISP. I finished the variant calling and obtained a VCF with the following structure:

Now I am going to write a script to transform this into a VCF with allele frequencies (because I haven't found one that does that), but I am not sure what I should use for that.

Should I sum the ADf and ADr of one of the alleles and divide by DP? What should I do when there are reads overlapping (ADb)?

Thanks!

Assuming that you are looking for alternate allele frequency in each of the samples represented in this VCF file (and not the cohort level frequency of alleles), you would like to extract the number of reads supporting alternate allele and divide by depth of coverage.

Based on the VCF header:

DP="Total number of reads (+strand,-strand) across all pools (filtered reads only)>"

ADf="Number of reads aligned to the forward strand of the genome supporting reference allele and the alternate alleles in the order listed"

AD="Number of reads aligned to the reverse strand of the genome supporting reference allele and the alternate alleles in the order listed"

Example entry: MLAC:GQ:DP:ADf:ADr .:10:8:0,4:0,4

DP: 8

ADf: 0,4 --> 0 ref and 4 alt allele supporting reads mapped to forward strand

ADr: 0,4 --> 0 ref and 4 alt allele supporting reads mapped to reverse strand

Total number of reads supporting alternate allele: 8 Alternate allele frequency: 1.0 (8/8)

Thanks for your answer! What about ADb?
