(EXPERIMENTAL) Processes reads from a MITESeq or other saturation mutagenesis experiment.
Category Coverage Analysis
Process reads from a saturation mutagenesis experiment.
This tool processes reads from an experiment that systematically perturbs a mini-gene to ascertain which amino-acid variations are tolerable at each codon of the open reading frame. It's main job is to discover variations from wild-type sequence among the reads, and to summarize the variations observed.
- A BAM file. Any combination of paired or unpaired reads can be presented. In paired mode (the default mode of operation of the program where overlapping pairs are combined before variant calling), the BAM must be in unsorted or query-name sorted order (so that read pairs are adjacent). The BAM file should be aligned to the amplicon under scrutiny. You may also specify a text file listing several BAMs.
- A fasta-formatted reference file with the wild-type sequence of the gene as a single contig. It's best to include the entire amplicon including any expected 5' and 3' UTRs.
- A description of the location of the open reading frame (ORF) within the reference. For example, --orf 128-1285 would describe an ORF that begins at reference position 128 (1-based coordinates) and ends at reference position 1285 (inclusive). It's possible (though unlikely) to have an ORF with multiple exons: List the exon ranges separated by commas. For example, --orf 128-1284,1384-1433 would describe an ORF with two exons. The total length of the ORF must be divisible by 3, and should begin with a start codon and end with a stop codon.
- An outputPathAndPrefix that specifies where to write the output reports.
- The most important report is a tab-delimited text file named outputPathAndPrefix.variantCounts which describes the observed variations from reference, the number of times each was observed, the effect of the observed variations on the codons, and their translation into amino acids.
- There are a number of additional reports that summarize this information for each codon.

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).
examine supplemental alignments to find large deletions
A configuration file to use with the GATK.
--gcs-max-retries / -gcs-retries
If the GCS bucket channel errors out, how many times it will attempt to re-initiate the connection
int 20 [ [ -∞ ∞ ] ]
Project to bill when accessing "requester pays" buckets. If unset, these buckets cannot be accessed. User must have storage.buckets.get permission on the bucket being accessed.
--help / -h
display the help message
--input / -I
BAM/SAM/CRAM file containing reads
R List[GATKPath] 
--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:
--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:
- Take the union of all intervals
- Take the intersection of intervals (the subset that overlaps all intervals specified)
--intervals / -L
