Service Notice: Due to the blizzard currently hammering the US Northeast, the Broad is shut down and the GATK forum will be mostly unattended while we hunker down and sip hot cocoa with marshmallows. Assuming the power stays on and we're able to dig ourselves out of the snow when it's all over, normal service should resume Wednesday or Thursday.

why are the PL (Phred-scaled likelihoods) values missing from the genotype info?

The printed values missed the PL value, for examples, the format is:

GT:AD:DP:GQ:PL
['0/2', '1,0,10', '11', '8.12']
['0/2', '211,39,0', '250', '99']
['0/1', '10,1', '11', '14.38']
['0/1', '4,2', '4', '24.38']    
['0/0', '27,0', '27', '78.26']
['1/1', '164,2', '183', '99']
['0/1', '242,1', '249', '99']
['0/1', '225,0', '233', '99']
['0/0', '84,5', '82', '81.18']

For every case, the PL value is missing. It happens most often when there are more than one alternative alleles.

Thank you,

Jim
