I haven't been doing variant calling for a long while and now I got a new project that I'll be doing some variant calling on cancer patient normal and tumor samples. I'm interested in calling both germline variants from the normal sample and somatic variants from the tumor/normal pair. I'm wondering if someone could share what's the latest best pipeline/practice for doing this type of work nowadays?
I was using GATK for germline and Mutect2 for somatic before.
thanks for sharing! looks a new pipeline tool to learn..
new ? happy birthday nextflow :-)
i meant i've never used it myself.. :p
Pierre, could you please also recommend some well validated fastq file sets to test the pipeline and compare with other callers? I've known GIB but never used it. Would you recommend that? I'm looking for something small enough to handle on a local machine.
