After using Gatk for realignment + recalibration, then samtools for calling : what step is missing ?

Hello,

I am new at using GATK (v 2.1-3). I do exome sequencing by sample using the following steps: Alignment with BWA (0.6.2) GATK :Local realignment around INDELs PICARD (1.67): FixMateInformation GATK: Recalibration (BaseRecalibrator + PrintReads -BQSR) Samtools for calling variants

Samtools seems to run properly but no file (*.vcf and *.bcf) are created and no error message is prompted :

cd Sample_09 + samtools mpileup -BE -ug -q 20 -Q 20 -D -f human_g1k_v37.fasta realigned_fixed_recal.bam -C50 + bcftools view -bvcg - [mpileup] 1 samples in 1 input files Set max per-file depth to 8000 [bcfview] 100000 sites processed.

+ cd ..

I have seen that some groups use after realignment Picard:AddOrReplaceReadGroups and I wonder if I should use before calling the variant with samtools.

Thanks in advance for any advice you can give me.

Chris
