Goodbye GATK Forum

Posted by Sheila on 11 Sep 2018 (16)


Dear GATK users,

I am writing this blog post to let you know it has been a wonderful 4+ years working on the forum and answering your questions. Thank you all for giving me a job for all this time and keeping me entertained :) I enjoyed learning all about the GATK while answering your questions. But the time has come for me to move on and learn some new skills.

I am not leaving the forum unattended, however. We have a new team member joining, along with a few other people who will be able to help you all out. There will be another blog post soon to introduce the new team members.

I trust these new team members will do a great job, and I wish you all the best in your journeys.

Sincerely, Sheila

@Greg_Owens No need to trim your reads for GATK -- in fact it's better not to. The tools take base quality into account appropriately.
