HI When I run Base recabrator with the following command:

java -Xmx4g -jar /usr/bin/GenomeAnalysisTK.jar -T BaseRecalibrator -I realignedBam.bam  -R /data1/human_g1k_v37.fasta --knownSites /data1/snp132.vcf -o recalibration_report.grp

I get the following error :

    Hi there,

    It looks like you might have two different problems at the same time.

    1. The HttpMethodDirector/SSL gobbledygook suggests that the Phone Home feature is not working (maybe you're running on a machine that can't access the internet?). See the FAQs for the solution to that.

    2. Your knownSites VCF file may be malformed; you should try validating it with the Picard validation tools.

    Incidentally, you're running an older version of the GATK, so I recommend you upgrade. We'll be releasing version 2.2 sometime in the next day, so be sure to grab that when it becomes available.
