VarDictJava is a variant discovery program written in Java and Perl. It is a partial Java port of VarDict variant caller.

The original Perl VarDict is a sensitive variant caller for both single and paired sample variant calling from BAM files. VarDict implements several novel features such as amplicon bias aware variant calling from targeted sequencing experiments, rescue of long indels by realigning bwa soft clipped reads and better scalability than Java based variant callers.
