Print Reads --sample_name option doesn't apply to BAM header @RG SM:

tyamaguchityamaguchi CanadaPosts: 3Member


I use --sample_name option to restrict output reads for PintReads walker (GATK version - 2.4.9). This option works well but the output BAM header @RG still contains sample name (SM) that was not included. Is there a way to apply this --sample_name option to BAM header at the same time? I could reheader the BAM files using samtools but I'm looking for a better and easier way.

Thank you,
