Summarizes counts of reads that support reference, alternate and other alleles for given sites.
Summarizes counts of reads that support reference, alternate and other alleles for given sites. Results can be used with CalculateContamination.
The tool requires a common germline variant sites VCF, e.g. derived from the gnomAD resource, with population allele frequencies (AF) in the INFO field. This resource must contain only biallelic SNPs and can be an eight-column sites-only VCF. The tool ignores the filter status of the variant calls in this germline resource.
