Dear GATK team

I tried following commands to validate SNP calling (Comparing with SNP Array data)

$ java -jar /usr/local/GenomeAnalysisTK-2.1-5-gf3daab0/GenomeAnalysisTK.jar -T Pileup --showVerbose -R ./human_g1k_v37.fasta -I -o
$ java -Xmx2g -jar /usr/local/GenomeAnalysisTK-2.1-5-gf3daab0/GenomeAnalysisTK.jar -R ./human_g1k_v37.fasta -T VariantsToVCF -o Sample.pileup.vcf --variant:SAMPILEUP --dbsnp /home/database/broadinstitute/1.2/b37/dbsnp_132.b37.vcf

then, I got error message like this

"ERROR MESSAGE: the SAM pileup line didn't have the expected number of tokens (expected = 10, saw = 1 on line = 1 14369 C CCCCCCCCCC GGGCC#CIHG"

$ head

Do you have any idea??
