Call status and Quality filters

In order for a variant to pass the filter, it must fall in a region with a minimum coverage of 8. In addition, the score of the variant (this is an internal value calculated by the variant caller used) must be above a specific threshold which is chosen by calculating a ROC curve (one for SNVs and another for indels) and selecting the values that give us the best trade-off between sensitivity and specificity. 

Call status can be PASS or FAIL.

  • Sentieon variant caller: variants/indels with mapping quality ≥ 100 and coverage ≥ 8 are set as PASS.

Dynamic Filter for Call Status allows you to filter based on:

  • Call Status
  • Allelic Balance
  • Coverage


You need to run the analysis with all variants included, in order to be able to filter subsequently by Call status:
