    TA The issue with the clustered events and haplotype filters when running in -genotype-germline-sites is a real problem.  These filters should only be triggered by a cluster of technical artifacts ...

    TMB You are inadvertently running in multi-sample mode: Mutect2 thinks both samples are tumors.  You need to specify -normal-sample, and -tumor-sample is a deprecated optional argument (it does not...

    G E We studied those particular Novaseq artifacts extensively a couple years ago and also informed Illumina, and found the read orientation filter to be effective.  Your data show some questionable...
