    Are you running FilterMutectCalls and are you looking only at PASS variants in IGV?  The normal_artifact filter, which is applied by FilterMutectCalls, should handle this without any need to modify parameters.

    If you are running FilterMutectCalls already, could you post your full command lines, the GATK version (eg, and paste a few VCF lines with variants that should be filtered but are not?
