5. Include relevant details, e.g. platform, DNA- or RNA-Seq, WES (+capture kit) or WGS (PCR-free or PCR+), paired- or single-end, read length, expected average coverage, somatic data, etc.
6. For tool errors, include the error stacktrace as well as the exact command.
7. For format issues, include the result of running ValidateSamFile for BAMs or ValidateVariants for VCFs.
8. For weird results, include an illustrative example, e.g. attach IGV screenshots according to Article#5484.

Did we ask for a bug report?


Then follow instructions in Article#1894.

Formatting tip!


Wrap blocks of code, error messages and BAM/VCF snippets--especially content with hashes (#)--with lines with three backticks ( ``` ) each to make a code block as demonstrated here.

Error in CountCovariates as well in BaseRecalibrator

I am using the latest version of GATK, During the Quality score recalibration I found the following error.
The code was as follows: java -Xmx4g -jar GenomeAnalysisTK.jar -l INFO -R ~/SCZ_data/ref_hg19/hg19sum_upper.fa --DBSNP dbsnp132.txt -I ../output.marked.realigned.fixed.bam -T CountCovariates -cov ReadGroupCovariate -cov QualityScoreCovariate -cov CycleCovariate -cov DinucCovariate -recalFile input.recal_data.csv

ERROR MESSAGE: Could not find walker with name: CountCovariates

later i understood that i should use BaseRecalibrator for this new version of GATK, but i am still not sure what to put in the reference file for SNPs with the -knownSites command from where to obtain these vcf files?

java -Xmx4g -jar GenomeAnalysisTK.jar \
-T BaseRecalibrator \
-I my_reads.bam \
-R resources/Homo_sapiens_assembly18.fasta \
-knownSites bundle/hg18/dbsnp_132.hg18.vcf \
-knownSites another/optional/setOfSitesToMask.vcf \
-o recal_data.grp

Can you please suggest me what should be done??
