    What purpose does --pedigree serve?

    It says "Pedigree file for determining the population "founders"", but I do not understand what the output is or what that output can be used for.

    I think that there may be a typo in the "Single-sample GVCF calling with allele-specific annotations" section. It suggests the options "-G Standard -G AS_Standard". However, when using those, I get an error: "Unrecognized annotation group name: Standard" .

    After looking through the GATK4 workflow at:
    I changed those options to "-G StandardAnnotation -G AS_StandardAnnotation", which didn't throw that error. (I don't know whether it is working, though, as I'm new to using GATK.)
