Dear all,

I am working on the NGS data by using some galaxy tools and I do not know many things on bioinformatics. The aim of my project is to type KIR genes at the allelic level. Those genes are very polymorphic like HLA genes. Now, I used BWA-MEM to align my illumina paired end reads to the human reference genome hg19 and try to visualized them on IGV but I do not know which galaxy tool should I use after to identify the different alleles for each gene. I read on the internet that after alignment, the next step is the calling variant but i do not know what tool for that...

Thank u in advance,

There are a number of very readable resources out there to help with the bewildering number of choices you need to make at the neighing , this link to a previous question I think gives two of the best.

A: How to use GATK on Galaxy

I suspect you will also  opt for GATK for variant calling 

Once you have a basic plan (and maybe a workflow to go with it), this forum is a great place to come back to for specific questions.

Thanks  Guy
