**BETA** SvDiscoverFromLocalAssemblyContigAlignmentsSpark

(Internal) Examines aligned contigs from local assemblies and calls structural variants or their breakpoints

Category Structural Variant Discovery


Overview

(Internal) Examines aligned contigs from local assemblies and calls structural variants or their breakpoints

This is an experimental tool and should not be of interest to most researchers. It is a prototype of a method for calling structural variation from alignments of assembled contigs and is under active development. For a more stable method for this, please see DiscoverVariantsFromContigAlignmentsSAMSpark.

This tool takes a file containing the alignments of assembled contigs (typically the output file produced by FindBreakpointEvidenceSpark) and searches for split alignments or alignments with large gaps indicating the presence of structural variation breakpoints. The type of each variation is determined by analyzing the signatures of the split alignments, and are written to VCF files in the designated output directory.

Inputs

  • An input file of assembled contigs aligned to reference.
  • The reference to which the contigs have been aligned.

Output

  • Text files describing the discovered structural variants and complex structural variants in the specified output directory.

Usage example

   gatk SvDiscoverFromLocalAssemblyContigAlignmentsSpark \
     -I assemblies.sam \
     -R reference.2bit \
     -O output_directory
 

Notes

The reference is broadcast by Spark, and must therefore be a .2bit file due to current restrictions.

boolean  false


--exclude-intervals / -XL

One or more genomic intervals to exclude from processing
Use this argument to exclude certain parts of the genome from the analysis (like -L, but the opposite). This argument can be specified multiple times. You can use samtools-style intervals either explicitly on the command line (e.g. -XL 1 or -XL 1:100-200) or by loading in a file containing a list of intervals (e.g. -XL myFile.intervals).

List[String]  []


--gatk-config-file / NA

A configuration file to use with the GATK.

int  7  [ [ -∞  ∞ ] ]


--input / -I

BAM/SAM/CRAM file containing reads

R List[String]  []


--interval-exclusion-padding / -ixp

Amount of padding (in bp) to add to each interval you are excluding.
Use this to add padding to the intervals specified using -XL. For example, '-XL 1:100' with a padding value of 20 would turn into '-XL 1:80-120'. This is typically used to add padding around targets when analyzing exomes.

int  0  [ [ -∞  ∞ ] ]


--interval-merging-rule / -imr

Interval merging rule for abutting intervals
By default, the program merges abutting intervals (i.e. intervals that are directly side-by-side but do not actually overlap) into a single continuous interval. However you can change this behavior if you want them to be treated as separate intervals instead.

The --interval-merging-rule argument is an enumerated type (IntervalMergingRule), which can have one of the following values:

ALL
OVERLAPPING_ONLY

IntervalMergingRule  ALL


--interval-padding / -ip

Amount of padding (in bp) to add to each interval you are including.
Use this to add padding to the intervals specified using -L. For example, '-L 1:100' with a padding value of 20 would turn into '-L 1:80-120'. This is typically used to add padding around targets when analyzing exomes.

int  0  [ [ -∞  ∞ ] ]


--interval-set-rule / -isr

Set merging approach to use for combining interval inputs
By default, the program will take the UNION of all intervals specified using -L and/or -XL. However, you can change this setting for -L, for example if you want to take the INTERSECTION of the sets instead. E.g. to perform the analysis only on chromosome 1 exomes, you could specify -L exomes.intervals -L 1 --interval-set-rule INTERSECTION. However, it is not possible to modify the merging approach for intervals passed using -XL (they will always be merged using UNION). Note that if you specify both -L and -XL, the -XL interval set will be subtracted from the -L interval set.

The --interval-set-rule argument is an enumerated type (IntervalSetRule), which can have one of the following values:

UNION
Take the union of all intervals
INTERSECTION
Take the intersection of intervals (the subset that overlaps all intervals specified)

IntervalSetRule  UNION


--intervals / -L

One or more genomic intervals over which to operate

List[String]  []

String  null


--num-reducers / NA

For tools that shuffle data or write an output, sets the number of reducers. Defaults to 0, which gives one partition per 10MB of input.

prefix for output files (including VCF files and if enabled, the signaling assembly contig's alignments); sample name will be appended after the provided argument

R String  null


--output-shard-tmp-dir / NA

when writing a bam, in single sharded mode this directory to write the temporary intermediate output shards, if not specified .parts/ will be used

Exclusion: This argument cannot be used at the same time as sharded-output.

Name of the program running

String  null


--QUIET / NA

Whether to suppress job-summary info on System.err.

Boolean  false


--read-filter / -RF

Read filters to be applied before analysis

List[String]  []


--read-index / -read-index

Indices to use for the read inputs. If specified, an index must be provided for every read input and in the same order as the read inputs. If this argument is not specified, the path to the index for each input will be inferred automatically.

List[String]  []


--read-validation-stringency / -VS

Validation stringency for all SAM/BAM/CRAM/SRA files read by this program. The default stringency value SILENT can improve performance when processing a BAM file in which variable-length data (read, qualities, tags) do not otherwise need to be decoded.
