Hi. I want to calculate variant allele frequency in regulatory regions in colon cancer versus genomad data.

I googled too much and likely

gVCF is individual-level vcf

pVCF is population-level vcf

but this is too confusion

Can I use pVCF files for my project or I must use WGS/WES gVCF files?

In the gatk ecosystem gvcfs are used to generate a pvcf. Search the gatk doc for genotypegvcf.

Thanks. Can I calculate variant allele frequency in a list of genomic coordinates using pVCF?

if you use gatk, the AF field should be present in the INFO field.

Thank you. As likely pVCF is population level files, you think is that possible to calculate VAF for certain patients IDs let's say belong to colon cancer only
