Bug Bulletin: we have identified a bug that affects indexing when producing gzipped VCFs. This will be fixed in the upcoming 3.2 release; in the meantime you need to reindex gzipped VCFs using Tabix.

Which elements of the read groupe header are considered in BQSR?

Hi, I am working on a data set in which (1) multiple individuals were sequenced on the same lane, and (2) the same individuals were sequenced in multiple runs. If I get this right, we would thus want to consider both lane and run as covariates in BQSR. I have two questions related to this: 1) Which elements of the @RG header are considered by BQSR? All given there (e.g. ID, SM, LB, PI, PL)? 2) I am not sure where (in which @RG elemnt) to best incorporate run and lane info?

cheers, R
