Did you remember to?


1. Search using the upper-right search box, e.g. using the error message.
2. Try the latest version of tools.
3. Include tool and Java versions.
4. Tell us whether you are following GATK Best Practices.
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.
9. For a seeming variant that is uncalled, include results of following Article#1235.

Did we ask for a bug report?


Then follow instructions in Article#1894.

Formatting tip!


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

Variant Annotator annotations

I am trying to understand how Variant Annotator functions. I took the vcf file from the output of UnifiedGenotyper and ran Variant Annotator with the same .bam and .bed files I used for running UnifiedGenotyper. I expected that all the calculations in the INFO field will remain the same, since I am using the same input files. However, I find that some fields have different values. Here is an example:
UnifiedGenotyper output:

chr22   30094366        .       G       A       172.01  .       AC=1;AF=0.500;AN=2;BaseQRankSum=3.182;DP=244;DS;Dels=0.00;FS=0.000;HaplotypeScore=118.5897;MLEAC=1;MLEAF=0.500;MQ=43.29;MQ0=0;MQRankSum=-0.049;QD=0.70;ReadPosRankSum=1.428;SB=-6.201e+01        GT:AD:DP:GQ:PL  0/1:220,19:244:99:202,0,2693 

VariantAnnotator output:

chr22   30094366        .       G       A       172.01  .       ABHet=0.923;AC=1;AF=0.500;AN=2;BaseQRankSum=3.182;DP=993;DS;Dels=0.00;FS=0.000;HaplotypeScore=454.8386;MLEAC=1;MLEAF=0.500;MQ=43.29;MQ0=0;MQ0Fraction=0.0000;MQRankSum=-0.378;OND=0.034;QD=0.17;ReadPosRankSum=-4.859;SB=-6.201e+01      GT:AD:DP:GQ:PL  0/1:220,19:244:99:202,0,2693

I am running GATKLite 2.1. Notice the DP in the info field has a different value. HaplotypeScore, QD, MQRankSum, etc have different values as well. Am I doing anything wrong? Shouldn't these values be the same when I recalculate these fields using VariantAnnotator?
