Calculate basic statistics about the reference sequence itself
These are very basic statistics: total number of bases and number of "regular" bases (i.e. A, C, T or G).
A FASTA reference file.
Base counts are written to file if an output file name is given (with -o), otherwise output to stdout.
java -Xmx2g -jar GenomeAnalysisTK.jar \ -T FastaStats \ -R ref.fasta \ [-o output.txt]
These Read Filters are automatically applied to the data by the Engine before processing by FastaStats.
The arguments described in the entries below can be supplied to this tool to modify its behavior. For example, the -L argument directs the GATK engine restricts processing to specific genomic intervals (this is an Engine capability and is therefore available to all GATK walkers).
This table summarizes the command-line arguments that are specific to this tool. For details, see the list further down below the table.
|--out||PrintStream||stdout||An output file created by the walker. Will overwrite contents if file exists|
Arguments in this list are specific to this tool. Keep in mind that other arguments are available that are shared with other tools (e.g. command-line GATK arguments); see Inherited arguments above.
An output file created by the walker. Will overwrite contents if file exists.
