Hello, I was wondering if you have a page that explains which parameters affect performance of which tragets of the GATK?

In particular

  • DepthOfCoverage
  • RealignerTargetCreator
  • IndelRealigner

For whoel genome, DepthOfCoverage can take more than 30hours and this is with the ommit base counts. Would putting in a higher read_buffer_size with more ram help, etc.

Thanks Louis
