Only use reads from the specified library

Category Read Filters


This filter is useful for running on only a subset of the data as identified by a read group property. In the case of the library filter, the goal is usually to run quality control checks on a particular library.

Usage example

Enable the library read filter

     java -jar GenomeAnalysisTk.jar \
         -T ToolName \
         -R reference.fasta \
         -I input.bam \
         -o output.file \
         -rf LibraryRead \
         -library library_name
