Root Mean Square of the mapping quality of reads across all samples.
INFO=<ID=MQ,Number=1,Type=Float,Description="RMS Mapping Quality">
This annotation provides an estimation of the overall mapping quality of reads supporting a variant call. It produce both raw data (sum of square and num of total reads) and the calculated root mean square.The raw data is used to accurately calculate the root mean square when combining more than one sample.
The root mean square is equivalent to the mean of the mapping qualities plus the standard deviation of the mapping qualities.
Uninformative reads are not used in this annotation.
