Hi, I'm updating my pipeline for exome sequencing analysis, so I'm experiencing the HaplotypeCaller capabilities! I have analyzed the same sample with the UnifiedGenotyper walker and the HC one and I have examined the differences between the two output vcf files and I had a very bad finding... HC failed to find a true novel variant!! I know that this is a true variants because I validated that with Sanger sequencing after the first calling with UG.
I have run UG using GATK version 1.6-11-g3b2fab9. This is the VCF line of the variant:
chr7 45123943 . A T 3436.17 PASS AC=2;AF=1.00;AN=2;BaseQRankSum=2.043;DP=114;Dels=0.00;FS=2.678;HRun=1;HaplotypeScore=0.0000;MQ=42.18;MQ0=1;MQRankSum=2.152;QD=30.14;ReadPosRankSum=-0.781;SB=-1010.47 GT:AD:DP:GQ:PL 1/1:8,105:114:99:3436,253,0
I have run HC using GATK version 2.7-4-g6f46d11 both in a single- and in a multi-sample manner but not the shadow of this variant in the VCF output.. I also noticed that together with this novel variant, HC lost other two variants upstream the first; these are the VCF lines:
chr7 45123881 rs61740891 C T 654.25 PASS AC=1;AF=0.50;AN=2;BaseQRankSum=0.205;DB;DP=43;DS;Dels=0.00;FS=65.862;HRun=0;HaplotypeScore=2.2312;MQ=30.27;MQ0=1;MQRankSum=3.254;QD=15.22;ReadPosRankSum=-3.921;SB=-3.02 GT:AD:DP:GQ:PL 0/1:18,25:43:99:684,0,176

How is it possible?
Many thanks in advance
