Download the GATK

The GATK download includes all released GATK tools for error modeling, data compression, and variant calling. Queue is a pipelining system built to work natively with GATK as well as other high-throughput sequence analysis software (the Queue package includes the GATK within the Queue.jar binary). To obtain the source code, follow the link below to our online Github repository, where you will have the option to either download the codebase as an archive package or to clone the Git repository.

Important note on reliability and performance

Please be aware that this is cutting-edge research software, with the downsides that this implies. Some parts of the GATK tool chain are under active development, and you may occasionally run into bugs that we haven't caught yet. Rest assured we are working hard to make these tools faster, more stable, and more scalable all the time -- and be sure to update your version regularly to benefit from the latest bug fixes and improvements!

Important note on commercial use

If you plan to use the GATK for-profit, you will need to purchase a license through our commercial partner, Appistry. Please see the Appistry-GATK website for more information. GATK-Lite is no longer available as of version 2.4; see this blog post for more details of the relevant changes.
