MappingQualityFilter

Filter out reads with low mapping qualities

Category Read Filters


Overview

This filter is intended to ensure that only reads that are likely to be mapped in the right place, and therefore to be informative, will be used in analysis.

Usage example

Set the mapping quality filter to filter out reads that have MAPQ < 15

     java -jar GenomeAnalysisTk.jar \
         -T HaplotypeCaller \
         -R reference.fasta \
         -I input.bam \
         -o output.vcf \
         -rf MappingQuality \
         -mmq 15
