Walks over the input data set, calculating the number of reads seen from male samples for diagnostic purposes.
One or more BAM files.
Number of reads seen from male samples.
java -Xmx2g -jar GenomeAnalysisTK.jar \ -T CountMales \ -R ref.fasta \ -I samples.bam \ -o output.txt
This Read Filter is automatically applied to the data by the Engine before processing by CountMales.
This tool does not apply any downsampling by default.
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.
